By now we’ve all seen the footage and we’ll know the MRP’s decision in the next few hours……..Was that tackle from Dangerfield a reportable offence?
From a Supercoach point-of-view it’s fairly irrelevant since practically everyone has Dangerfield in their team. What really hurts his case is that Kreuzer didn’t return to the field. He suffered a minor concussion and was kept on the bench.
For what its worth, I don’t think Danger has a case to answer. He wasn’t aware that the ball had been knocked free and at no point did he sling or rotate Kreuzer in the tackle. There have been many references to Danger ‘pinning’ Kreuzer’s arms but that’s how I’d envision a decent tackle. It comes down to a question of excessive force. Was the tackle excessive? I’d still say no. It’s an unfortunate result from a good tackle, much like Shaun Burgoyne on Sam Reid earlier in the year (which also got the all-clear).
What do you make of it, Coaches? Does Dangerfield have a case to answer? Or will he get the green light in the next few hours?
