    It was a pre-season game and Bundy tackled Brad Mackay who got up and gave him a push. Bundy dropped him with a short left jab. Wayne Collins was dummy half and stepped forward to remonstrate and Bundy popped him with another short left jab and gave him jelly legs.
    bang bang - was ridiculous
    Was on TV so the footage might exist somewhere - have not seen it for years

    What annoys me is that the NRL introduced this "new no fighting rule".

    Well hello. Its been a rule for a while, its just the refs didnt have the balls to send a bloke to the bin.

    IMO if Gallen was sin binned back then, then there probably wouldnt be such an over-reaction from the NRL and the media darlings.

    I mean I can think so many examples of blokes getting sin binned for throwing a punch before this supposed new rule came in.

    Some good ones were Michael Weyman Vs Mark Riddell and Craig Stapleton and John Hopoate. Piggy Riddell was in the dressing rooms looking happy and pumped, even though we were getting pumped on the scoreboard. Stapleton against Manly in 2004 though his job was done but Hoppa wanted more in the tunnel lol.

    Going back to that Gallen incident, the NRL told the refs to get tough but they went way over the top. I swear in a club game there was a brawl, two blokes went toe to toe throwing punches, two others were pushing and shoving, no punches in that one. Yet the refs sin binned all 4 players in a massive over-reaction. The fans were fuming.

    Hardly surprising, after Tallis got away with his little brain snap in round 1.

    Not sure if it was the same year, but the Warriors played the Broncos and when Carl Webb got into the one of the Warriors players at the play the ball, it exploded.

    Betham got involved and everyone thought he would go toe to toe with Webb, given their boxing backgrounds but I think Betham ripped into Casey McGuire and Webb got into another Warriors players but it was good to watch.
