How many weeks for Latrell?

Rabbitohs supporters think that playing with injuries in big matches is only a trait that only belongs to the South Sydney Rabbits..Jack Bird played in the GF with an hyper extending his elbow..

Dallas Johnson played a dead rubber Origin game with his brain leaking out his ears and nose.

Seriously though, a chick played the netball GF on weekend with a broken rib, Sammy Burgess the whole GF with broken cheek bone, Ben Hunt played with a broken leg, Cronk the whole GF with one arm.
Manu comes off crying and the whole roosters organisation breaks out into tears.
Roosters need to harden up as an organisation, the Storm mental toughness that Cronk instilled is gone.
Quoted for truth.

It's no coincidence Robbo is French. He's a coward. A cheese-eating surrender monkey.

Socrates Gould has repeated ..today and i don't how many times that Latrell wouldn't have been punished as harshly if Manu wasn't injured...well no shit guru...and anyone who T bones a car while driving recklessly wouldn't be charged with culpable driving and end up in jail if only someone wasn't killed! Why should the victim of any reckless act be the only one to suffer the sliding scale of possible consequences of somebody else's lack of self control. You sail close to the wind with your actions then it should be YOU who also suffers the consequences relative to the damage done.

One thing I think Gus does have right is that we see too many players suspended nowadays - players are getting time on the sidelines for ‘pressure on the neck’ when in reality, they wouldn’t even have known about it, let alone meant to do it.
Bans should really be kept for incidents that are either intentional or reckless. And I’m guessing this is where Gus has got himself all tangled up - he’s sick of seeing players banned for fairly innocuous contact, but he’s chosen the wrong incident to fight this battle on.
In my opinion, get rid of all the relatively minor charges that we currently suspend blokes for and replace them with fines, but then when you get an incident like this one, hit em with monster bans - minimum of 10 games.
Now, whilst I don’t think for 1 minute Latrell meant to injure Manu, in the heat of the moment, he went in for a monster shot with no consideration of the potential negative outcomes, which is entirely natural in the heat of the moment, you don’t stop and think ‘what if this goes wrong’. In a contact sport like ours, you’re always going to get incidents like these where it goes wrong - but the players need to know that if you choose to play on the edge like that, it’s a high risk way of defending, and can cause serious damage if timing is just slightly out, and subsequently if it does, you’ll be sitting out for a long long time.
Thats the only way to minimise these types of incidents happening - players ultimately need to be more controlled with their aggression, because if not, they might get it wrong, and there should be a heavy sanction for if they do.

Jesus…imagine if the incident was the other way round Souffs would declare war 😂

Pretty sure we didn't carry on the way the Rorters have when Riley Brown took out Craig Wing with a cheap shot that had him on the sideline longer than Manu.
