    Parramatta superstar Jarryd Hayne is in danger of missing State of Origin II after being put on report for headbutting in the Eels' 24-10 win over Melbourne in Friday night's spiteful grand final rematch.

    In an absorbing first meeting between the two sides since the decider that never was - with Melbourne stripped of their 2009 premiership for repeated salary cap breaches - emotions which had been kept mostly in check for most of the night exploded midway through the second half.

    Hayne found himself in hot water after tangling with opposite Billy Slater, referee Tony Archer leaving the NSW Origin winger in little doubt as to how costly his 62nd minute blow to the head of his Australian teammate could become.

    "There's a lot to lose with the weeks leading up," Archer told Hayne during his caution, no doubt alluding to upcoming Origin matches.

    "You've got a lot to lose with the weeks ahead."

    Hayne could find himself joined on the Origin sidelines by Slater as well, the Storm fullback sin-binned after retaliating with what appeared to be a elbow to the head of Hayne four minutes later.

    The incident wasn't put on report but will surely come under the watchful eye of the match review committee, Slater binned along with Eels halfback Daniel Mortimer after the incident sparked a brawl.

    Hayne is probably in some trouble. But the grub Slater should be in an equal amount of hot water for his couple of cheap shots. His cynical slide in with the knees to the back of Jarryd Haynes head whilst on the ground was what precipitated the whole thing. Then he went for the elbow to the back of the head as an even up after Haynes weak Liverpool kiss. They should both be suspended for being cats.

    Good to see a game with a bit of passion, quite enjoyed seeing two teams I hate bash the living tripe out of each other. Let's hope there are a few injuries to come out of it.

    Gidley to stay at fullback is the only downer about the whole thing. God help NSW.

    Slater is a total low-life. The only disappointment is that he missed with the elbow - otherwise he would have deserved about 10 weeks. Exposed for the grub he is. Hayne showed restraint in not putting his head backwards through the advertising hoarding. Both should miss Origin 2.

    Yep, agree with all that, Hayne gone for sure, another halves combo for NSW and Gidley at fullback...

    Quite a fun game to watch, and more gems from my new favourite commentator Freddy (They're kissing, they're kissing!!)

    No more TBA rule....you can not play for your club before an origin match (so you could not "serve" a suspension)

    And the eels have the bye...
