    Yes it was and it doesn't matter what the rule was brought in for, there is no distinction between north/south and east/west in the current rules.

    It was a clear shoulder charge and the judiciary just ignored the rules.

    Normally when there is a topic such as this you will see some of the supporters from that club come out and say yeah we are lucky and I don’t believe they should have overturned the decision.

    But I haven’t seen one person just admit to it. I guess these vicderps know better than absolutely everybody else including every single ex league playing commentator (qlders included) that said it was a shoulder charge.

    If that is 'technically proving it wasn't a shoulder charge' then the only way to make a shoulder charge in rugby league is to have your other arm behind your back or pointed straight towards the ground and for the 'first point of contact' to be with the very point of the shoulder, not the pec or tricep regardless of whether the arm is tucked or where the impact comes from.

    And the judiciary panel doesn't 'technically prove' anything, just like a jury doesn't technically prove anything.

    It's not a conspiracy theory if it is the logical and accepted conclusion.

    When I said they proved, I was referring to Slater and his lawyer.

    And with the way the rule is written, with no use or attempted use of the arms, then that allows a lot of leeway.

    They proved nothing. The same as a defense lawyer in a criminal case isn't obliged to prove anything.
    Your posts in this thread demonstrate that either you are, or have the intellect of a 9 year old.

    Fine then, they successfully convinced the judiciary panel that it wasn’t a shoulder charge. Geez people are so pretentious here

    Then according to you the only way a shoulder charge should be penalised is if they have both arms behind their back.

    The arms are always going to be in use in some way.

    It’s not according to me, that’s the actual rule. Whether you like it or not, whether you agree with it or not, it doesn’t matter. The way the rule is worded at the moment played to Slaters advantage
