We saw tonight matai restrain from throwing punches tongiht, and cop a few bruises for his trouble. Under the new rule you get penalised for defending yourself. If we look outside footy. If someone hits you in the street, you can defend yourself (as long as you use reasonable force). This new rule is going to get someone seriously hurt. If the NRL is 'serious' about stamping out fighting, Allgood will spend the rest of the season on the sidelines.
