My view is he was just bracing himself for the impact which is a natural reflex...

If he was our player and got pinged for that I would blow up.

Bracing himself for impact? He's a 112kg back rower hitting an 85kg halfback who didnt have the ball.
IMO he raised the forearm.

I was thinking the same thing. He could have used other means to brace himself instead of lobbing his elbow into Moltzen's jaw.

Looked very reckless to me lesser incidents have been on report had the result of the game been different we would have many disgruntled supporters blogging for taylors head having said that its so satisfying beating them dastardly rabbits.

Nothing in it. He was protecting himself.

I think Moltzen should of stayed the hell out of the way, what was he doing standing in front of Taylor after the hooter when the game was over? and Taylor didn't even have the ball.

I think that taylorwas shocking last night, and while I didn't see the incident, I wouldn't be surprised if he was venting.

Expect to see a typical NRL Ref crackdown on this in the comming weeks.

http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/ ... 6037498562

PLAYERS leading with the forearm are becoming a huge concern with the match review committee - and it could be only a matter of weeks before a player is rubbed out.

Committee chairman Greg McCallum said he had noticed a worrying number of incidents on the weekend, including a hit-up by Manly's George Rose on Jeremy Smith at Toyota Stadium on Saturday night.

"We're concerned by the amount of players leading with the forearm, and there were quite a few incidents on the weekend," McCallum said.

"The players are treading a fine line between bumping players and actually striking. And under the rules this year, the onus of proof just has to be careless, not intentional when the player is carrying the ball."

Melbourne's Bryan Norrie and Eels battering ram Fuifui Moimoi led with the forearm in the space of 90 seconds at AAMI Park on Sunday, while Souths' Dave Taylor's effort on Wests Tigers halfback Tim Moltzen on Friday night also raised eyebrows.
