    Never in doubt. I didn't see much of it but mate at work just told me it wasn't a stiff arm and more of a lazy grab so sin bin was enough. Problem is, if it's a saints player, for sure he gets suspended for this game.

    If Tariq Sims did the same thing he’d get 3 weeks. Fact.

    Gotta agree there, he always cops it.
    That penalty against him on Sunday was bs. Making a tackle, decoy runner comes through and gets tangled up in it and he's penalised. Am i missing something with that one?

    Yep due to the inconsistent review panel of grading.
    So they great NRL counsel prosecutor straight out of school uses 2 meek Grade 1 so called water tight examples for his case which easily are shot down by the high flier roosters lawyer defence, argued and convinced the judiciary in no time. Fed dinkum. Great offence, well done!
    Why did he just present some Grade 2 prior offences which were not as bad as we all know no one is more inconsistent than the review panel. Or show some of Tariq Sims penalties. Better still show Momorovski's tackle which was upheld and worth 3 weeks to the judiciary's eyes. Was it 3 times as bad as Radleys
    And of course the no-name from Penrith did not get off.
    How does Hetherington feel..5 wks and a send off for Holmes who got straight back up V Radley $1,900 loose change fine
    The whole system is a basket case and depends on your popularity

    In saying that I did not think there was much in Radley's either. :)

    Yes and first contact with the shoulder which is considered not as bad or as reckless...unless your Tariq Sims, he got rubbed out cause his shoulder collided with a players head.

    Let's just let Josh McGuire take care of Radley on Sunday.

    Or better yet, Rava.

    It will be so much better when we beat the Roosters with Radley playing so that the Roosters cannot whinge about not having him play if he was suspended.

    Our boys have to fire up and keep the fire in their belly stoked up all game.

    Fines - baloney ! If the bloke had indeed done something, anything wrong , suspend him as they once did in years gone by .

    I don’t care if it is Radley or whomever , if found guilty then suspension must follow . Too much leniency for some players nowadays, perhaps certain teams , I can only repeat what crush has said - if it was or is a Dragon on Anzac Day then we can be sure that the heavens will open with fire and brimstone cascading down on the poor sod .

    That is true unfortunately, even though I think the bin was sufficient.

    The fines are BS.
    If you’re guilty, you’re guilty, suspended.

    Irrespective of the ifs buts and maybes.....the judiciary just need to be a little more consistent with their verdicts.......surely if one is charged in the first place then stick with it...if not dont charge them .....just a waste of time and money

    They say the roosters are understrength
    They still have a classy 17.
    Both injured props have been named and radley got off.
    They have only lost to souths and storm.
    No disgrace if we don't win.
    OT A a new video is circulating involving another player, i hope its not our club involved.
