We don't seem to have a dedicated thread on this but it seems important enough to have one...

NRL: Warriors pair Bunty Afoa and Jazz Tevaga charged by NRL match review committee

Warriors forwards Bunty Afoa and Jazz Tevaga have been charged by the NRL match review committee following last night's 32-0 loss to the Sydney Roosters.

Both players have been hit with grade one dangerous contact charges after Afoa connected with Roosters prop Sio Siua Taukeiaho in the 13th minute, before Tevaga was involved in a potentially dangerous legs tackle with interchange front-rower Jared Waerea-Hargreaves on the stroke of halftime.

The pair will escape further penalty however with early guilty pleas leaving them available to play for the Warriors in next Friday's away clash against Parramatta at ANZ Stadium.

Roosters' enforcer Dylan Napa has also been charged for two offences that occurred in the spiteful final stages of the game at Mt Smart Stadium.

The 25-year-old Queensland State of Origin forward faces a $1,500 fine for his high shot that forced Warriors teenage second-rower Isaiah Papali'i from the field in the 76th minute, although an early plea would see that reduced to $1,100.

Napa has also been charged with grade one dangerous contact after a late hit in the final minute of the match on Warriors prop Bunty Afoa.

The incident sparked the last of three melees involving Warriors senior forward Adam Blair and Tevaga, but Napa will escape further punishment again with a second early plea.

Both Napa and Waerea-Hargreaves terrorised the Warriors pack, with the former engaging in an enthralling battle with Warriors prop Agnatius Paasi, who was left bleeding after the pair clashed heads in a brutal collision in the 15th minute.

Waerea-Hargreaves also ironed out Warriors five-eighth Blake Green with a late tackle after a clearing kick, and was eventually sent to the sinbin after he pushed his Kiwis teammate Blair to further inflame tensions in the 79th minute.

"He just made up a story and came running over," Blair said of the incident.

No charges for Napa's headbutt on Jazz? That cant be right, surely. Him and JWH are some of the grubbiest players out there. They dont come under enough scrutiny from the refs for their behaviour.

We really let them bully us off the park.... bring back Awen!
No! Roosters will somehow fit Thanos under their cap. Use one of the stones and bring Adrian Morley back to take smash Awen.

"The NRL has let Andrew McCullough escape suspension for punching Chris Satae in the head, while Satae also escapes a ban for a dangerous lifted elbow.
Two months after Melbourne centre Curtis Scott was sent off and subsequently suspended for two games, McCullough is free to play next round after only being hit with an $1150 fine."

I dont like the elbow lifting, its been a bugbear of mine for a while but it happens every game and nothing is done about it. Sending Satae to the bin for it is only acceptable if this is the start of a crackdown on it but if that was the case where is the warning from the NRL.

Letting McCullough get away with just a binning for punching is a joke.

Logic being if they suspend him they had to suspend Satate? based on what? the same decision given to them on field?

They clearly didnt want to suspend McCullough or they would have made him appear at the judiciary ( there is meant to be a no tolerance of punches in the NRL now).

So It looks as though they have washed their hands of it....which also requires in all fairness that they go soft on Sataes dangerous play charge.

IF Satae was the sole protagonist I doubt the judiciary would be so lenient....hes a nobody and there is no love of the Warriors at the judiciary.

its great that Bunty is available, but it shits me no end that Sims did exactly the same thing and they have a perfect pic of it, yet he didnt get charged. while i dont believe in a conspiracy with the refs, i do believe in the one that puts NSW first at the Judiciary.

I want to hear either SK or CG publicly questioning what I believe is an anti-Warriors bias by the Match Review Committee.

Following this weeks game we have Tevita Satae on report for his tackle on Ado-Carr. As it saw it, it was a typical arms wrap tackle around the shoulders where unfortunately A-C,s head contacted TS’s shoulder.

Yes, it was marginally late but no later than any other tackle on a kicker after a kick.

We have seen Warriors contacted by:

Gavet shoulder charge
Nikorima nearly being decapitated by a Bronco

and no charges laid.

Would comment by SK make any difference I don’t know but Cameron Smith getting in the ear of Henry Perenara on Saturday night certainly changed the way HP refereed the Warriors from then on, so you never know!
