    Liam Knight on Cherry-Evans - Grade 2 charge for his late hit (not sin binned)

    Christian Welch on A. Fifita - Grade 1 Charge for his late hit (not sin binned)

    James Gavet on Smith - Grade 1 charge for his late hit (Sin binned).

    The NRL supposedly put out this warning late hits would be sin binned.

    Why hasn’t it been upheld for the whole round?

    Nothing to do with certain teams always being the ones to be made the example of, surely not.

    Its a joke really

    Now watch JWH get suspended for his hit on McGuire yet that grub gets nothing for two blatant eye gouges!

    It’s the Knights what do you expect?

    One of our players doesn’t react to getting Headbutted and punched and still gets 10 minutes.

    Oh so finally Victor Radley isn't the only person to be sin binned for a late hit after the 'crack down' was announced mid last year?

    Lol at the Knights fans.

    Weren't you blokes cheering when AFB got binned for a love tap on a falling Pearce trying to catch a short kick off earlier in the season? Then he copped a suspension on top.


    Gotta protect those playmakers!!

    I do feel the length of DCE's neck contributed to Knight getting a grade 2. That head bobbled around! Was only a split second late, however.
