Levy Lets Fly – the NRL Match Review Committee haven’t got a clue
Macquarie Sports Radio Breakfast Host Mark Levy has let fly at the National Rugby League Match Review Committee after Cameron Munster escaped any serious penalty for kicking the head of Roosters centre Joseph Manu in the NRL grand final on Sunday.
Munster copped a grade one dangerous conduct charge, while entering into an early guilty plea, escaping with a $1400 fine for what the 24 year old is calling a “brain fart moment”.
Levy says the NRL Match Review Committee needs to be reviewed due to a lack of consistency and “replaced with former footballers who understand what is illegal and what is fair play.”
Co-host and former NRL legend Mark Riddell agrees, saying the incident was a low act and the measly fine is a “punishment doesn’t fit the crime.”
Riddell says the ruling “highlights real problems amongst the grading system that’s involved with the judiciary.”
Does the system need an overhaul? Was the fine too lenient or do you believe it was just a “ love tap”?
