Just a bit of idle off-season chatter....but I have been thinking on this for a while. So, players who throw a punch are now automatically sent to the bin, right? It is an immediate binn-able offence, as of mid-2014. But almost every fight you can think of BEFORE this rule came in, someone was sent to the bin anyway! Usually even the poor sod who'd been attacked, even if he hadn't actually really retaliated. So what's the difference? Let them punch on, I say...(mainly in response to a daydream I just had about Taupau smacking Sam Burgess around, if he tries to get nasty with the Eagles ever again).
