Crouch takes Atley to ground and a free kick is paid to the North Melbourne player for a dangerous tackle action.

    1. Agree but i thought he was a bit unlucky. Tex layed an almost identicle tackle but didnt result in injury. If you are driving someone into the ground there is the potential for injury and therefore suspension.

      1. Yep he was a bit unlucky as Lynch’s sttempt to kick the ball definitely contributed to the slinging action but the injury and suspension cycle of Waite never ends!
