    With their small pack the Panthers work very hard in attack and defence. Their support play is excellent.

    Storm surely lose 2 points???

    COME ON WARRIORS !!!

    https://www.foxsports.com.au/nrl/nr...o/news-story/55ec73ea4f90271afc0f65d70fe70b7e

    Melbourne is being investigated and could be fined for fielding 14 players on the field for a short time during Thursday’s win over the Roosters.

    The Sydney Morning Herald revealed Storm winger Suliasi Vunivalu helped make a defensive play which prevented the Chooks from scoring a try midway through the second half.

    Vunivalu was injured in the 60th minute and was substituted off the field, replaced by Nicho Hynes.

    But when the Roosters restarted play and looked like making a break down their left flank, the injured Vunivalu came back into the field of play to stand in the defensive line and help thwart the attack, with 14 Storm players in play.

    Surely that has to be a points deduction.

    I recall one player being penalised, many years ago - I want to say it was Danny Nutley, or Jason Stevens...I remember it was a Sharks forward.

    Chris Beattie, maybe?

    I can't remember.

    I would've thought a bite would just be a fine these days.

    Was an enjoyable game until the send off and Titans were having a massive dig.
    Gee i like watching Corey Thompson play.
    How the Tigers let him go is ridiculous

    Yeah. And I like Thompson too. I've said in the past we should have looked at him.

    Johnson seems to think the bite stays on the field, a non issue

    James Graham got 12 weeks for biting Slaters ear

    He’s looking after his mate. It shouldn’t matter, he made the allegation to the ref, it’s on video....Proctor has to get 8 weeks.

    I kinda agree. Biting someone on the ear is a merkin act that could have serious consequences. Biting on the forearm not so much. And if they already got sent off that's a decent punishment, depending on the circumstances. And with trips being just a fine now, is a bite on the arm much worse?

    You think the NRL are going to let that precedent to be set? And trips aren't always just a fine. Jackson Ford got 2 weeks I believe.

    Oh yeah, Johnson was very filthy when it happened

    then roses and daffodils after the game lol

    8 weeks seems about right, even Big Mal is saying it is hard to defend

    Probably not

    Though you don't want a precedent set where blokes are biting guys on the arm with 5-10 min to go and game (result of it) is well over,, knowing there is no real ramifications for the bite

    Count Dracula comp :p

    No. I expect he'll get whatever the rules currently specify, or thereabouts. Just saying it seems out of line now with tripping. And isn't nearly as bad as biting someone on the ear. Or balls.
