  1. Happy that Lewis got 3 (down to 2).

    Hope Hodge gets 3.

    Still disbelieving that two champs of the modern game behaved like that.

  2. Call me old fashioned if you will……..I still think Steven May’s bump on Rockliff was fair. Just unfortunate that Rockliff got caught as he did. Very stiff getting the same penalty as Lewis’ deliberate late round-house swing……

  3. 3 weeks for Hodge and May, 2 weeks for Lewis doesn’t read right to me. Thought the MRP had it figured out but these verdicts don’t seem to show much common sense.
