    Now there was 1 canon ball tackle on the weekend which was penalised.
    Below is an extract from the NRL back in January on this tackle.

    ""What you'll see in those two tackles that we're coming down strongly on, the cannonball and the crusher, is that the health, welfare and safety of the players is at the forefront of every decision," Greenberg said.

    "There were some tackles last year that we were just simply not happy with. We need to come down strongly on players who attack opponents when they're in defenceless positions.

    "So when a player is standing there with two defenders on him, he's effectively defenceless. If someone comes in and attacks him below the knees that is going to warrant significant penalty and so it should."
