    If he gets a week suspension will the Tongan game count? If so the suspension might be a blessing in disguise. 17days without footy will hopefully get his legs better

    I presume he'll miss the Tonga game if he gets a week, pretty sure how that works.

    This.

    Was more in the crusher tackle on Wade Graham.

    On a side note can Gal look into a boxing match with John Bateman. I want to see him get his head punched in.

    I really enjoyed the rag doll tackle on Sezer. Funniest thing I’ve seen this year

    Guys, it was stupid and unnecessary.

    The tackle had already been completed when he came over the top. No need for it.

    We needed him ripping in last night.
    Did it once and destroyed merkins.

    The stop and prop and sidestep and sideways run. No.

    I dont think there was much in it but one day he will hurt someone badly the way he drops all his weight down on a tackled player. Theres no need for it.

    Feefs is really starting to frustrate me. I know what he can do but we just arent seeing it enough. If he is injured then have a rest. If he is good to play then FFS Run straight and hard, knock over a few merkins then ball play on the other side of a broken defensive line if you have to.
    We dont need anymore playmakers we need strong, straight runs and fast play the balls. We deadset look way better when Feefs and Prior go off and William's and Uele come on.

    I wish they all had Gal's attitude when it came to carting the ball forward.

    Would you say that if a Storm player did the exact same tackle against us?

    Deserves a week suspension, it was stupid.

    This is what pisses me off, Fifita has a shocking rep so they hammer him, he flopped onto him and yes his head was in a bad position when he flopped. But that's not your typical crusher tackle.

    The tackle on Graham was a dead set typical crusher and should be attracting way more scrutiny.

    Sure wouldn't, but hey that's my God given right as a fan.

    Seriously though, if Fifita is charged then bateman should be

    Best thing for feefs is to miss the high intensity Tonga game and an extra week off. A real shame for him personally because he love the Tongan jersey, but he looks to me like he needs a break.

    And yeah, I’m happy for the nrl to rub out that kind of tackle, but if they are fair dinkum there’re identical ones in every game.
