Well after all this, we are equal fourth and only behind The by 7 points on F/A and they have had a ridiculously easy draw.

Some significant upsets this weekend.

If 2021 Flegler does that JWH shoulder to the head he would be sent off and 6 weeks. With Jared's record he's got to be looking at an extended break. That sort of contact is asking for a major concussion, broken jaw/cheekbone and NRL have to show some kahunas.

So expect another suspended fine.
Yep... the saint that is JWH has been given a Grade 1 for direct forceful contact to the head with his shoulder.

Bloke should be spending 4-6 weeks on the sideline for his tackle as well as potentially being sent off in the game, but instead he will get his 100th fine of the year and was not even penalised on the field.

NRL being strong on head injuries just as expected.

What a load of shit that decision is. No idea how that isn't a grade 2 careless at the very least, and could've easily been grade 2 reckless.

How the **** did JWH only get a $3000 fine for this?

That is completely fucked. Let's see if the media get on board with highlighting the injustice.

The CM we're claiming that he'll be walking the judiciary tightrope for the remainder of the season as any future charge will result in suspension

I don't buy it though

It doesn't though... that was classed as his "3rd and subsequent offence"... under the new system he'll just keep racking up fines if they keep giving him grade 1's.

Same thing happened last year when him and NAS racked up fine after fine and barely got suspended... and then the NRL finally slapped him with a grade 2 and he spent like 4 weeks on the sideline and the moron media were complaining "that's not worth 4 weeks"... yeah no shit, but he's not getting 4 weeks for that one shot it's because he's already copped like 6 grade 1 fines for the year.

They brought this new multi-fine system in specifically to keep JWH and NAS on the field. Of course they were going to grade every offence just low enough to keep it to a fine.

Dolphins fans were blowing up on Saturday night that the ref cost them the game not awarding Isaako's field goal and penalizing Max Plath for blocking.

Annesley showed in the briefing that Isaako didn't even get the field goal, he missed. Also showed that Starling is running directly towards Isaako until Plath steps into his path and Starling is then forced to step and go around him.

As for JMK, nothing in it really. He's got his hands all over Tapine when he's playing the ball and Levi is entitled to be where he is considering he's the dummy half that's just passed the ball.

You could probably penalize Raiders, it was a 50/50 call at worst.

If nothing else it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that every Redcliffe fan is a fibber - I thought it went over for sure judging by their reaction!

Credit where it's due, it was a tough night at the office for Gee but hindsight proves he was justified in his decisions.

Bennett also complained about that in the post match presser. although I guess the players got the answers he wanted
