    Did anyone else noticed it?

    Matt played the ball after McGuire the grub tackled him. As Dufty plays the ball the grub grabs Dufty by the jersey and threw a sneaky rabbit punch landing one on Dufty chin. the match review committee must be blind or incompetent.

    Let's hope the match review committee picks thisup on Monday and that McGuire serves a few weeks for that one.

    What is more puzzling is that the match officials did not notice it and so no penalty or sin bin or even send off occurred. It's time the Dragons were given a little bub of the green.

    I saw it mate. And the Fox panel commented as well.

    I know he's a grub, but that was pretty innocuous. Doubt he will miss any games.

    That's footy my boys.

    The game has softened enough. If Dufty had any ticker he'd have dog shotted McGuire on the way back

    No other charges from the game besides Felts tackle on Bird (2 - 3 weeks )

    If you go back a few minutes earlier you can clearly hear McGuire say to Dufty “Hook told me to smack you in the mouth if I ever catch you out of position”

    Ok, well it makes sense then, good tactic! Should be interesting when we play Penrith.

    Under the pathetic rules of the NRL he should have been sin binned for it though.

    Which one?

    I couldn't believe he did an identical tackle late in the game, and I suppose because no one rushed in there wasn't even a penalty for it. Would've been handy at the time. :confused:

    2nd half tackle was actually a pretty solid shot..

    That first half one was nasty, he lifted both legs & put him on his head.

    If he doesn’t get at least a week for that one, McGregor is a career coach.

    Did not notice until fox sports replayed it and commented on it. Duff was pretty riled up last night he came in all angry at Drinkwater after Ramsey through him over the side. As far as I could see Drinkwater stopped resisting so im not sure why Ramsey through him over and equally baffled why Duff came in all "Angry Ant" at him. Some words were spoken out there last night?

    Very important ingredient to any successful team is a grub.

    He got off with a slap on the wrist, twice for eye gouging.

    Of the course the NRL would do SFA about a sneaky rabbit punch that would be lucky to bruise an ego.
