  1. This is what is confusing to me, Hodgy being called for striking ,seriously!
    What about all the crap at start of games , like when JJ was targeted for example ,
    blokes crashing into players back when they aren,t looking and worse. Nothing is done about that . Inconsistency reigns supreme.
    I know Hodgy has a record but ????
