  1. Greene has already accepted the 2 games. No words if Brisbane will be appealing Zorkos suspension yet, many like his have flown under MRPs radar this year.

  2. Latest word is the Lions are seriously considering an appeal of Zorko’s Suspension. They are not happy with the grading as the Zork claims the hit to the stomach was with an open hand.

    Don’t know if it is good or bad news for his owners as he risks 2 weeks if still found guilty after an appeal.
