    Should fight it so he's not left with 95 odd carryover points and at risk of missing the grand final for some minor infringement. Bet we don't but.

    Yeah. And their value is determined by how often they’re shit, and by how much.

    If we fight it and he misses a game it means Evans will be picked again.

    At least later in the year we could save having that problem by having Nrown back.

    I do go off Champion Data, because it’s better. I also use attempted tackles rather than just tackles, because it’s a better indicator of effort.

    If he’s on the ground more often it’s because he’s usually first into contact.

    And we know two of those penalties are for dangerous tackles - a spear tackle against Penrith in round one and the one on the weekend against Norman. Are the other four for poor wrestling, or just being smart and slowing the ruck down when he knows the line isn’t set?

    True but if Timmy is good to go then Evans might only have to put in a token appearance, like yesterday.

    How was Moeroa charged for that? The commentators on Fox thought there was nothing in it, penalty sufficient. Why do we always get pinged for these minor incidents??? Surpised Sivo wasn't charged for his tackles on Dufty and Norman.

    What is the point of work rate if it leads to ineffective tackles?

    Regardless if he is first in contact, he needs to be better at wrestling so that he ends up in a position that he can get back to marker. I tend to think it might be an upper body strength thing as he can’t dominate the wrestle.

    In response to the last point, id argue the former and you’d argue the latter.

    My brother who is a Merge supporter, and massively salty after the game, reckons Sivo should get 4 weeks for that. Also called him something terrible relating to his ethnic background, and reckons the refs cheated for us.

    WHAT A FLOG.

    That charge on Tep was truly embarrassing, only a club like ours gets a BS charge like that.

    Gouge a bloke and pay a fine if you play for others.

    Agree 100%, we haven’t challenged a charge since 2015 IIRC. Some of those charges have been absolute BS.

    I wonder what the overall success rate is for challenging charges across the NRL?

    It wouldn't be very high...

    I was in Redcliffe this afternoon and there was some guy sitting in a restaurant with a St George jersey on. The nerve of some people.

    It is actually very high (off the top of my head).

    You get QC's, doctors and Physics professors arguing a case to a bunch of ex-footy players. They are usually successful.
