    Nathan Merritt charged for sliding feet first into an attacker, attempting to stop a try. His first offence and he is looking at suspension.

    That ****ing grub Slater has done it at least twice that I can recall, and got warned once for it.

    That grub Slater almost took Robos head off in the GF coming in using his legs to try and kick the ball away on the try line.

    Actually - wasn't it a Matt Ridge tackle that changed the policy?

    "That F**king grub Slater has done it at least twice that I can recall, and got warned once for it. "

    Yes agree that Slater should have been suspended during the World Cup for daring to use the same crooked dangerous tactic. And in the grand final Robbo should given a penalty try because of it in my (biased) opinion  ;)

    Wasn't the original game in 1996 at Brisbane against Brisbane when Matthew Ridge booted the ball out of the about-to-score opposition player as he crossed the tryline next to the goalposts? Or was it in NZ.....

    A beautiful piece of work actually if you get to see a replay  ;D  but good to have this "tackle" rubbed out for the obvious safety reasons

    Something tells that it wasn't at brookie but an away game...and you're right, from memory it happened just to the right of the goalposts

    Brookiegreg is right, because I actually saw that game a couple of weeks ago, and he did it well. However I do recall him missing once which wasn't pretty

    At the time I remember one of the commentators (maybe fatty or Stirlo) joking saying that they were surprised that Ridge didn't kick this one straight between the goalposts - because everything else he kicked that day went that way  ;D

    Don't we need a deadeye dick that Matthew Ridge now????

    Dan, my bet is against Brisbane at Lang Park - and a pretty empty Lang Park cause it was at state of origin time methinks....and a reasonably easy victory by Manly

    Yeah it was at Lang Park, we skipped out to the lead early against an under manned Broncos and held it steady all the way

    From memory, Ridge never tried to kick it out of the players hand but put his foot under the ball as he was grounding it.
    Definitely to the right of the posts (by about 10 metres I think)

    Dan, if it turns out to be '96 then I win this one and you owe me a beer payable at brookie oval next mon night against the panthers  ;D

    Thanks Kiwi Eagle for the info and I feel for you this week taking a pounding for Manly from all your mates - and at least nice to know my memory isn't as dodgy as I thought
