    Exactly, and unless the NRL has an employee right there, then they have no business fining teams as they have to trust the teams are doing the right assessment. If the teams can't be trusted (and lets face it they can't), then they need to have their own trainers at each game to oversee the rule, and make the call.

    Maybe Tubby but would that cover mis-diagnosis of concussion?

    Whatever Tony got it wrong.

    Does anyone even read Peter Fitzsimmons articles anymore? The guy is so out of touch it's not funny. He's about a rubbish writer as Buzz/Nathan Ryan except without the agendas usually. Much like Bourbon Bec, writes like he doesn't actually follow Rugby League weekly.

    I do, I quite enjoy them usually. It's good to get the perspective of someone who's not a huge fan, and I find he's usually pretty fair.

    Not sure if anyone caught this, but the Warriors have copped a 'please explain' after leaving a wobbly David Fusitu’a on the field after a head knock. No media hysteria, no $100k fines, interesting if nothing else

    Look at this way HP.

    The Knights, Titans and St George got the blueys. What do these three Clubs have in common? Simple. Indebtedness to the NRL and they cannot kick up a fuss. Imagine if the poor Broncs or Cows got such a notice? Turdberg is hopeless.

    The three NRL owned Clubs have each been fined $50,000 over the concussion issues.

    What a load of you know what Turdberg!

    Let me see you take on some of Uncle Rupe's clubs.

    Never would turdberg attack the likes of broncs, roosters, cows, storm. Imagine the backlash and how many brown paper bags would be lurking around.

    Club Statement: Sanction

    Thu 6th April, 01:00PM

    NRL today finalised the Newcastle Knights' sanction for a breach of the head injury rules in Round 3.

    The Club received a significantly reduced $50,000 fine, with $50,000 now suspended.

    Despite the reduction, the Club remains disappointed and will now consider the appeal process.

    When the matter is finalised, the Club will make a public statement.

    Club Statement: Sanction


    Thu 13th April, 02:00PM


    The Newcastle Knights will not appeal the NRL’s downgraded sanction for a breach of the head injury rules in Round 3.

    The NRL issued the Club with a Breach Notice on Monday March 20, following an alleged concussion involving Brendan Elliot.

    “As a Club, we absolutely support the NRL in strengthening the rules and improving the management of head injuries suffered by players,” CEO Matt Gidley said.

    The Club thoroughly investigated the matter and sought independent evaluation by a leading concussion specialist, before providing a formal response to the NRL.

    “We adamantly support our medical staff and the integrity they demonstrate in the management of our players,” Gidley added.

    Regardless of the outcome, the Club remains extremely disappointed in the process that the NRL has undertaken in regards to this matter.

    “As a Club we will write to the NRL and express our disappointment in the manner this process has been managed,” Gidley concluded.

    In much simpler plain English:-

    'Blah blah blah we do what we are told by our owner blah blah blah..........."
