NRL ‘under pressure’ after a controversial weekend
The NRL is under pressure to intervene Curtis Scott’s suspension.
Fox Sports commentator Andy Raymond told Macquarie Sports Radio the NRL decision-makers are feeling the heat after a tough weekend all round.
Scott can accept a two-week ban for a punch that broke Dylan Walker’s eye socket. The penalty was reduced due to the 28 minutes he missed after being sent off.
“The NRL hierarchy is under more pressure this week than they have ever been,” Andy told Matt Granland and Tony Shaw.
“Times have changed. You just can’t do it.
“It going to be really interesting couple of days.”
The penalty seems light on face value, especially given Walker will miss six weeks with the injury.
It was the centrepiece of a controversial weekend for the league.
The NRL was left red-faced when Manly players Apisai Koroisau and Matthew Wright were allowed back onto the field despite serving just eight of their ten minutes in the sin bin.
