    Standard tackling technique with no shoudlwr charge or swinging arm classed as a reckless tackle? Ridiculous.

    We'll fight it for sure, and I imagine get it downgraded massively.

    Yet another example of the match review panel basing a charge solely off injury rather than the incident itself

    Just saw the replay on Fox, what a joke.

    And Gallen's deliberate high shot on Shannon Boyd a few weeks ago didn't even warrant a charge apparently.

    Side on leading with the shoulder? I don't know ho which league you've played but "leading with your shoulder" is textbook.

    He f**king wrapped him up and took him to ground in a controlled fashion. Absolutely zero reckless about it.

    Apparently tackling too hard is a crime now

    If you're a defender and you're taller than the attacker the onus is on you to get lower. He didn't. The attacker didn't slip, there were no mitigating cirumstances - he just hit him high. Accidentally, but high regardless.

    Hence the grading of reckless is incorrect.

    Reckless tackles are still unintentional.

    It was a chest high tackle in which his arm bounced up off the ball. The blow to the head was glancing and the concussion most likely caused by the whiplash effect and hitting the ground hard.

    Well the defender in this one was 6'1" and the attacker 6'4" so that first bit is of no concern here.

    Nakubuwai hunched a bit like he was bracing to bounce Tetevano off which meant the shoulder that was aimed at his chest then popped him on the chin.

    Shouldn't even be looking at time on the sideline IMO. Good shot gone a bit wrong, penalty sufficient. The injury/concussion suffered by the ball carrier shouldn't count for shit.

    Didi I hear right that Tetevano was charged with a shoulder charge?

    If so I reckon he'll get off. It was a high tackle every day of the week and I'd think grade 1 or 2 careless/reckless but it was NOT a shoulder charge

    There you go, i think I heard it on "Talkin Sport" which will serve me right. Grade 3 seems a bit high but not ridiculous.

    Downgraded to Grade 3 Careless.

    Justice.

    The reckless charge was a joke.

    He only misses 1 week.
