Leeds player banned for one match

Leeds Rhinos centre Joel Moon has been suspended for one match after submitting an Early Guilty Plea to the Grade B charge of making a dangerous lift on Hep Cahill of Widnes Vikings in the 18th minute of the Super League Round 4  fixture played at Headingley Carnegie Stadium on Monday June 17.

Watched a re-run of the game today and yes moon did lift Cahill but in the course of the match there was several incidents of the same but they warranted no punishment, inconsistency is the word that springs to mind.

IMO the lift by moon was innocuous and certainly didn't deserve a ban, it was no worse than joe mellors in the first half.

Interesting no action seems to have been taken against the shoulder charges I've seen on sky recently; Winterstein and Soliola are two I can remember.

I've stripped out all the 'my club's better than your club' drivel to avoid having to leave the thread locked, and this is all that's left.

 

If it starts up again, Joel Moon won't be the only one facing a suspension.

Again,inconsistency,Mellor wasn't penalised for lifting the legs,I think he was penalised for interference.

strange that leuluai hasn't been cited for the shoulder charge which was put on report, i think that moon has been singled out unfairly by the powers that be.

It was put on report to see if contact was made with Hardakers head,it wasn't,so penalty sufficient?

Many fans seem to be confused about shoulder charges now, even Eddie Hemmings (who knows everything!) started spouting rubbish about "well if that was a shoulder charge then isnt it a straight red?!".

 

Well no, the old legal shoulder charge results in a penalty now, nothing more. Thats all thats changed!

 

A shoulder charge to the head, illegal last year and still illegal now, is completely different!

Fairdoos, I dunno if I've got wired crossed somewhere, do they get a match in the NRL for it then? If so I think that's where I got the mistake, if not then I dunno.

 

And Webby, what if my club is better than someone else's club?! :biggrin:

Leuluai isn't that kind of player.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.
