Choc will be right if he pleads guilty, he wont miss a game. :dance:
wow cant ask for a better result than that. I would have budgetted for losing at least one player this weekend.
This should also mean we should not play with the Beaver. This gives him 2 weeks rest.
and as a couple of you know, when the Chocs available, you dont really need Beaver!
good stuff. The Panthers may have found a bit of form late in yesterday's game. We will need every hand on deck.
SYDNEY, May 28 AAP - South Sydney prop Jaiman Lowe is facing a four-week NRL ban
for his `king-hit' on Gold Coast centre Brett Delaney on Saturday night.
Lowe was hit with a grade five striking charge - the maximum grading allowable
without the incident being referred straight to the judiciary - after being sent
off for knocking Delaney senseless.
The incident occurred three minutes from fulltime in the Titans' 25-18 win at
The Rabbitohs front rower claimed he had been provoked into lashing out,
accusing Delaney of grabbing him on the testicles.
Delaney was not charged over the incident.
The grade five charge carries a base penalty of 525 points, but Lowe can escape
with a four game ban with an early guilty plea.
He would be risking a six-match suspension by fighting the charge at the NRL
judiciary on Wednesday night.
Four other players were charged but Cowboys lock Sione Faumuina is the only one
facing suspension after being charged with a grade one reckless high tackle.
The former New Zealand Test representative collected Bulldogs backrower Sonny
Bill Williams with a swinging arm just before fulltime in Friday night's 26-16
win to the Cowboys.
He is facing a three-game ban with an early guilty plea or four games if he
unsuccessfully fights the charge.
Manly's Anthony Watmough (dangerous throw) and Penrith duo Frank Pritchard
(careless high tackle) and Michael Gordon (dangerous throw) will all escape
suspension with early guilty pleas
lowe's charge is about right, considering delaney didnt get charged.
It was a good punch and after having hits nuts squeezed which is what it looked like on the replay you cant blame him.
Well I got it completely wrong. I would have assumed it would be the other way around.
Especially considering Matai's record.
lol....thought you'd just slip that in...so to speak...
Matai's tackle was a great one. He didnt lift the player. it was the force of the tackle that contributed to the position in the end.
I didn't think watmough would have a problem either. Mainly because everything was ok until king dragged the top of the player down at the last minute.
I would have thought they would just accept it as an accident with neither player at fault.
Pity none of the Penrith players will miss a week.
