Chambers deserved it. Very spiteful end of the game after a hard old fashioned grapple.

Titans forward Ryan James and Sea Eagles forward Jack Gosiewski were both charged by the NRL's match review committee from Sunday's clash in Gladstone.
James is facing a one-match ban if he enters an early guilty plea for a dangerous contact charge but risks a two-match suspension if he unsuccessfully fights the charge, while Gosiewski is facing a fine for a careless high tackle.
Ryan James has entered a guilty plea for his dangerous contact charge and will miss this weekend's clash with Penrith
Josh Jackson to face the judiciary tonight in a bid to have a grade two dangerous contact charge downgraded
Joe Tapine charged with tripping, He will cop a $1,100 fine with an early plea
Judiciary results: Sims, Prior, Tapine plead guilty
Mon 16 Apr 2018, 12:04 PM
Sharks prop Matt Prior and Raiders forward Joseph Tapine have both received fines over grade one charges from round six matches, while Dragons forward Tariq Sims is also free to play this week after entering a guilty plea.
Prior has been fined $1350 over a grade one careless high tackle on Dragons prop James Graham, and Tapine has been fined $1100 for tripping Eels forward Kenny Edwards.
Sims will have 90 carryover points to his named after being charged with making dangerous contact to the head or neck of Sharks halfback Chad Townsend.
Tripping deserves a much harsher penalty then a poultry $1100 fine.
Should be an automatic send off if spotted by the refs. If not then at least an automatic week. Such a **** act to do.
I can't believe you can be guilty of trip or high tackle and not get at least a week suspension.
Be interesting to know who actually pays the fine, if you are on $400k a year, over 52 weeks that's about $8k a week so a fine of less than $2k still leaves a bit to spend, in other words the more you earn the more you can afford to plead guilty and pay.
Trippers are grubs and in the good ole days would have got three weeks and a decent smack in the mouth!
Burgess could miss three matches for Sezer hit

South Sydney forward Sam Burgess faces up to three matches on the sidelines if he is unable to clear himself of a careless high tackle charge.
The NRL match review committee on Sunday issued a grade two charge against the Rabbitohs lock for his 59th minute hit on Canberra halfback Aidan Sezer in Saturday's 42-22 win at Gosford.
That means he will miss two weekends, if he accepts the charge. If he fights it and loses, it will be three matches out because of carry-over points and loading from similar offences over the past two years.
Sunday's charge is Burgess' seventh in three seasons. That list includes a shoulder charge in April last year, where the 29-year-old was found not guilty at the judiciary.
His younger brother George Burgess also attracted the match review committee's attention with a careless high tackle charge for his 71st minute hit on Raiders forward Luke Bateman, but will not miss any games.
George has been issued with a $1,550 fine for an early plea, but that rises to $2,100 if he unsuccessfully appeals because he has two non-similar charges in the past two seasons.
A third charge came out of the fiery round six match at Central Coast Stadium with second rower Elliott Whitehead landing a dangerous contact charge for hitting Tom Burgess from behind.
But Whitehead will be free to play the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville on Saturday night with an early plea.
Sam Burgess accepts two-match ban for Sezer hit
Mon 23 Apr 2018, 11:30 AM
Rabbitohs forwards Sam Burgess will miss the next two matches while his brother George has accepted a fine after both pleaded guilty to charges coming out of Saturday's win over the Canberra Raiders.
Sam Burgess was hit with a Grade 2 careless high tackle charge following an incident involving Aidan Sezer in the 59th minute of Saturday's match.
He chose to take the early guilty plea, which now means he will miss the next two matches.
George Burgess was handed a Grade 1 careless high tackle charge following a tackle on Raiders forward. By taking the early guilty plea, George will be fined $1550 but will be free to take on the Broncos on Thursday night.
Judiciary: Radley facing suspsension, Manu charged
Mon 7 May 2018, 11:45 AM
Roosters forward Victor Radley is facing a one-match ban for a careless high tackle on Manly prop Martin Taupau, and is one of three players charged by the NRL match review committee from Sunday's Telstra Premiership matches.
Radley will receive a one-match suspension if he enters an early guilty plea or is found guilty at the judiciary, after being hit with a grade two charge.
His Roosters teammate Joseph Manu can avoid a suspension with an early plea after being charged with dangerous contact over a tackle on Manly's Dylan Walker that drew criticism from Sea Eagles coach Trent Barrett.
Dragons forward Tyson Frizell was the other player charged from Sunday's matches, and can avoid a ban if he pleads guilty to making dangerous contact to the head/neck of Melbourne fullback Billy Slater.
Victor Radley was unsuccessful in his attempt to get a downgrade so he will miss 1 game
Joke of a charge that one. Wish the NRL never turned so soft, it’s pathetic what the game has become.
Interested to hear everyone's thoughts on the Smith tackle last night on Kevin Proctor
Video in the link below
He is an absolute grub. We all know he won't even get a week.
Oh how I wait for the day someone puts him in hospital. It’s long overdue.
Smith facing two-game ban for Proctor tackle

Cameron Smith faces a suspension of 1-2 matches after his controversial tackle on Kevin Proctor on Saturday night.
The Storm skipper was handed a grade-two dangerous contact charge by the NRL match review committee on Sunday for the incident in Melbourne's comeback win over Gold Coast at Suncorp Stadium.
If he submits an early guilty plea, he would miss one match but could be rubbed out for two games if he contests the charge at the judiciary and is found guilty.
Storm officials told NRL.com they would not be making a decision today, but were seeking legal advice and would regroup on Monday to discuss the charge further.
Smith was one of seven players charged for incidents from the three Saturday matches.
Three other Storm players are in strife - Cameron Munster and Josh Addo-Carr will escape suspensions with early guilty pleas for their dangerous cotact charges but prop Sam Kasiano is facing a one-game ban for the same charge.
Sydney Roosters prop Dylan Napa has been charged with dangerous contact (which could result in a $1500 fine) and a careless high tackle (which will not result in a ban if he pleads guilty).
Warriors duo Bunty Afoa and Jazz Tevaga will also avoid suspensions despite receiving dangerous contact charges.
Smith sought out Proctor, his former Storm teammate, after Saturday's match to clear the air after what some at the ground had suspected was a 'wishbone' tackle.
Proctor was forced out of the game early in the second half with an abductor injury that could keep him out for several weeks.
Smith was quick to defend himself after the game, both to Proctor personally and when questioned in the official media conference.
"I didn't try to pull his leg out," Smith said.
"Kevvie is a really good friend of mine and good friend of everyone at this club and has played many games for the Storm.
"So there was no way I was going in there to try to injure the bloke; I will be honest with you there.
"Whatever happens out of this game and that tackle I've got no control over it.
"All can say is that I'm not in there to ty to hurt a bloke, I can guarantee you that.
"I'm there early [in the tackle] and thought I was in a good position to get his leg up and get him down on the ground.
"It didn't work that way and we had three in the tackle and it ended up in that position.
"It's unfortunate and I spoke to Kevvie after the game to see how he was going.
"I made sure I said I had no intent to hurt him at all or for him to pick up an injury and he said he was very grateful for me to come over and say I had no intention and that's where it's at."
I'm looking forward to the day he retires so we will not have to put up with him anymore.
