Of course the media have to take some blame for not turning up the heat. They had a field day with BJ, spread his face all over the back page of most eastern state rags and gave him prime time on television making him out to be a thug. Yet with Latrell they basically accept the league’s ruling. The NRL will do nothing unless they are shamed
Spot on…one is a thug act and the other is defending his teammate…what a spin!!!
If either of them were on the street they would’ve both been locked up…but Mitchell’s is the true meaning of coward punch because reynolds wasn’t even facing the same way
But you can make an argument LM was defending his teammate. Who was BJ defending when he cheap shotted Edwards?
I find it difficult to think that LM was defending his teammate.There was no reason at all for LM to coat hang Reynolds at all. I find it much easier to believe that LM was on angry pills throughout the match and knew he could get away with almost anything.
We complain about the NRL and consistencies with player suspensions, how does Mbye retain his position? 4 missed tackles and 4 tries.
Who would you suggest to take Mbye place?
I’d back Talau up against Staggs. He won’t be on 950k per year and he will make a better fist of reading the sttack and tackling.
Tommy T is already on the wing for this particular game.
Mbye should be dropped for his disgraceful defence last game and failure to shield young Hoffman. This is on top of his captaincy issues with JL the previous game.
Isn’t Benji cpatain this week?

Queensland has just made the Campbelltown are a COVID hot spot … with playing the Broncos this week there could be a major problem with any players from the Tigers living in that area playing… as there needs to be a 14 day ISO period and the Broncos would be in the same boat going back to Queensland a 14 day ISO period . Good luck the NRL so if any do live there they have been training all week , looks like the game will be cancelled !
How many of players for this week live within the Campbelltown precinct?
Mark Levy: NRL’s hopeless match review committee and judiciary system must change
By Mark Levy

I had high hopes for the NRL match review committee in 2020 but nothing ever changes. Rugby league supporters are hard to please but they’re entitled to some consistency from the panel which is tasked with imposing penalties on players for acts of foul play.I was prepared to give the NRL match review committee a second chance with the change in personnel this year.
Latrell Mitchell will miss two matches for a similar, if not worse incident to the one involving Leilua.
The South Sydney fullback slammed Josh Reynolds across the jaw with a swinging arm, before throwing him to the ground in a spiteful game. Mitchell should have been sent from the field on Friday night but the referee allowed him to continue for the Rabbitohs. Adding to his wrap sheet, the NRL superstar was also fined for a careless high tackle on Luke Garner.
Wests Tigers utility Reynolds landed himself in hot water for attempting to kick the ball and contacting an opposing player in the head. There was no malice from the man affectionately known as ‘Grub’ but he’ll still miss the next two matches.
Like most supporters, I’ve lost complete faith in the match review committee and I think it’s time serious acts of foul play are referred straight to the NRL judiciary, where an appropriate punishment will be imposed. Joey Leilua cops a four-match ban and Latrell Mitchell receives two games - it’s not fair.
Annesly said both grub and Mitchell should of been binned
Annesley is always saying that his referrees made the wrong decision. He is getting paid big money to be the Referee boss and he never takes action against his referees for what are clear cut bad decisions. V’Landy’s should be taking severe action against Annesley but not a whimper from him on bad referring.
