    Pardon my ignorance but what exactly is a crusher tackle. Saw it but not sure exactly how it's defined.
    And what penalty might Horo be facing?

    Its when you crush their chin down onto their chest by putting pressure on their head. Horo's was a pretty good example so I expect he'll get a week at least.

    A Crusher is a mammal with lots of facial hair that used to run around open fields during the eighties in pursuit of a ball made of pig skin. Occasionally could be spotted sporting the maroon colours of QLD rather than his usual maroon and white of his traditional roaming area. Last seen Crusher was spotted in the vicinity of Belmore Oval in the Canterbury Bankstown region of Sydney. If spotted, please contact wires on as soon as possible.

    It looked like a second attempt at a tackle - not a crusher tackle at all.

    But the Manly Loading may kick in at the MRC :cool:

    No Manly loading needed for that to be a suspension. Didn't look good.

    I think you will find that moses will win bronze for the Aus driving team, nothing to do with crusher tackles

    Crusher will be chasing you around if he finds out you've been spreading rumours he was a Queenslander.

    I thought it was spotted in the vicinity of AAMI Stadium in Melbourne, but I stand to be corrected.

    I reckon you're right HM!

    Was 4 classes below you garden variety Storm tackle. That still means a suspension for any Manly player but there ya go.

    I think he will get a week for that tackle. It wasn't a bad tackle, but still a crusher.

    I think Horo just got the tackle wrong. Manly were on a mission all night to rough up Moses.

    Choc is back next week, so I assume a reconfig will happen, with lui or T red covering Horo

    This.

    I think he'll get at least a week; as much because we won so well and are so high on the ladder.

    But Choc can slot straight back in there anyway.

    Storm,dogs,rorters,rabbids would get nothing. The rest a week or 2. Manly about 6 weeks.

    Or more to the point RE as much because we're Manly, full stop.

    Yes, Choc's return will be timely.

    Horo was penalised for tackling a smaller man too heavily. The NRL be kind to sooks rule.
