Should of been a send off.
Otherwise we'd have players doing this not only to young bench props but also key play makers.

They are professionals and as such should tackle legitimately and incompetent or deliberate high shots should be punished as so.

4 high shots in 4 weeks, 1 penalty...

The shoulder charge should be banned from the game imo .
You cannot do one in junior league so why is it outlawed yet allowed in the nrl ?

The worst thing about this hit was that only Farah tried to get Te'o back.

Why didn't anyone else try and hit him??

Deserved a penalty and on report, but Groat contributed with his Martin Lang style run.

Never worth a send off or sinbin.

Prob coz if we got revenge the Ref would find the balls to Bin or send 1 of us off and we would be in a worse state.

So when has running it hard been a reason for an illegal hit?

Nice way to turn it around, kudos.

But teo went for a shoulder charge, it wasn't a wild swing trying to take his head off. The way Groat ran meant a normal shoulder charge copped him flush on the jaw.

Its called "mitigating circumstances".

I thought it was a good tackle.....am I the only one? As someone mentioned, shoulder charges have yet to be outlawed. Also, have we forgotten Simon Dwyers great hit on Waerea-Hargreaves?

Maybe, maybe not. I am still saying we should have been allowed to put another player on the bench. No matter what he was trying to do, he hit a guy in the head.

The AFL (trust me I really hate that sport) have an emergency interchange player to cover for injuries and the player he replaces can not go back onto the field. For mine such a system would make sense for rugby league.

Personally I think Teo will be charged and will do some time.

lol, Thanks

that's where Teo should make a tackle and not Shoulder charge. This is where the rule should say " shoulder charge to the head is auto 10 minutes and if the player is KO'd then sent off".

Great point.

We can't all cheer Dwyers hit and then cry when we are on the receiving end.

I can't stand Teo and that was a dog hit. He also put an elbow into Robbie's face and got off scot free.

I expect he'll get some time on the sideline for that.

Only thing is the rules were changed after Dwyers hit. It was a Legal shot in 2010. Still, if it was done now we would have no arguments to it being a bad hit.

I'm with you 18th Man. Not worth anything but applause. As the above posts mention, if the NRL are serious then the shoulder charge needs to be outlawed.

Yeh, at the game me too think the same.
But having a looksee on IQed replay he does get him high.
Frank Pritchard case has set a precedent, little blokes shouldnt run at big blokes unless you have some decent footwork....I love the big hits, but some like tonites imo sail close to the wind, you take a chance and i think Teo will be charged.

I though the penalty was sufficient , Teo s shoulder bounced off the ball and hit him in the chin , the intent was to make a legal tackle .

How can we judge intent?
