    Interesting. The Eels fans are saying that Seymour was falling into the tackle.

    Problem is, Moi Moi is approaching from the side and does have time to adjust. Also, he clips Seymour right on top of the head, so it would have been high even if Seymour was upright.

    The fact Seymour was knocked out and took no further part in the game won't help.

    They're brave going for the not guilty. You'd think they'd pleade guilty and contest the charge...........

    Oh, and Ben Cross has taken the early plea for "dropping knees" and will miss 4 weeks.

    2 of those will be the trials I assume.

    He MAY get it downgraded pleading not guilty anyway. I'd say he'll miss us regardless. A bigger gain for us would be Vellas not playing in my opinion.

    What do think of players being able to serve out suspension's in trial games. I think it is a farce because of the realative unimportance of trials to competition games

    I didnt think that he was falling into the tackle. He had been crouched at that same level for about 2-3 metres, he was hunched over not falling at the time of impact.

    Noone was complaining when Blue Arsed served out last year's suspension in this year's trials!

    If Moi Moi gets off entirely on this charge I'll wear a pint tutu to the game on Sunday.

    But I wasn't a member then so would not apply to me - I just think it is a flaw in the system (amoung many)

    I guess the argument is that the trials are preparation for the real thing and players that can't play them start the season unprepared.

    Cross is off to Melbourne isn't he? I'll bet they're impressed.

    Wonder if he has a clause in his contract that allows Melbourne to hold back a portion of his $ in the event of suspension
