      What a joke. No harm done to De Gois. I fear this could affect T Rex in his new found enthusiasm and aggression since moving into the forwards.

        Might drop his asking price.

        Might encourage him to stay and not make use of his option to make amends.

        Joke. No one got hurt. They punished him for what might have happened, not what did happen. Doesn't happen in the real world judiciary.

        Part of the severity of the charge must come from him being a big guy which is quite unfair. For speeding or parking fines you don't get a bigger penality/fine for driving a bigger car.

        Gobsmacked that Manly accepted the ruling. Thought they would've challenged for a downgrade for sure.

        They have set the bar now so the next player to do the rodeo throw we expect the same grading

        Very dissapointing outcome,3 weeks maximum would be more appropriate,but I guess he will have learned a very harsh lesson from this incident.

        I'm surprised we didn't challenge the grading, too, but obviously the advice we got said it was too risky. Seven is better than 10, I guess, but two or three would have been fair.

        With all the anti manly bias out there everyone i have spoken too was saying 3 to 4 weeks at most.

        Given 7 - 10 Trex got the galloway must now be worth a few centuries

        THey may not have challenged because Manly may have felt that they were going into unknown territory; is there a similar tackle they can compare apples with apples with? And without a similar case the odds are stacked against them, especially as one poster put it, the judiciary want to make a case and point about this cartwheel of a throw. In the end, if they had of thrown the dice, they reckoned the chances of getting lucky 5 was extremely slim, where as the chance to roll unlucky 10 was high. And a smart punter calculates the risk, the downside, the upside, and goes from there...
