I've got a raging semi. Well at least I wood if I was an Eels fan.
congratulations captain obvious
It would be inconsistent to not take the injury into account at this point. Snowdens case was the catalyst. The judiciary is mostly about scaring away certain on field actions anyway and they obviously want to get lifting tackles out of the game even if they're "not that bad".
At this point I'd say a few weeks off wouldn't bother Maclean either. I'd say he feels rubbish enough already.
I don't really know what to feel about the outcome at the judiciary tbh. It's just so monumentally sad all round.
Can see this incident leading to some fairly fundamental changes in the way the game is played tbh.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
If they do get rid of three man tackles, they would need to go back to the five metre rule. It would be virtually impossible to consistently stop blokes that big and fast with only two in a tackle if they have the room to wind up like they do now. It's be like under sixes with whoever gets the ball scoring.
Couple of interesting options I've heard include no three man tackles except in your own 20; no lifting at all; and if a player is lifted they can drop the ball in the tackle to protect themselves without being penalised for a knock on.
It'll take a lot of hard thinking to get the balance right.
In the meantime though, the juggernaut has definitely stirred out Parra way. Nathan Peats the buy of the year.
Hoping the Eels do well this year for no other reason than to highlight what a fraud Stuart is as a coach
Best win in three years. Fantastic defensive effort by Parra tonight. Got some real goers in the pack this year and the defensive reads by the outside backs are first rate.
