    I was at the game and was wondering why Shannon Boyd wasn't walked?

    I thought it was the rule that if you punch someone you are off for the remainder of the match?

    It was a clear punch that Nate sat down for so the video ref could view it. Manly even got a penalty for it.

    ref's called it 'lashing out'

    so when you hit a manly player it's just lashing out so no penalty needed.

    Of course, everyone else in the footy world knows it was a punch.

    media will prob remain quiet.

    Boyd's punch was a disgrace

    It should have been much harder

    The day that's called a punch will be the day I turn off league forever.

    rules are you spend 10 in the bin for a closed fist into the head

    he should have been binned simple as that.

    Refs must have got the call from Toddy to change the rules
