Was that a shoulder charge?   Have seen some good ones in highlights during the year and nothing said about then, not once.  Now they get to the pointy end and all of a sudden they want to call shoulder charge.
the important thing isn’t the shoulder charge question, it’s the fact Gallen and Fifita are no longer in the finals race 8)

Cameron Smith has dropped a pre-Grand Final bombshell by declaring he could retire with Billy Slater should Melbourne go back to back.

While the Storm sweat on Slater being cleared by the match review committee for a shoulder charge, they will also be hoping Smith was having only having a bit of fun with the media.

Slater has been charged for a shoulder charge.
Good stuff.
If he misses the GF, that's called Karma.

Of cause he will.

Just don't know how they can isolate that hit as a shoulder charge compared to some throughout the year that didn't even raise an eyebrow

Im not a Storm supporter.
But I love watching him play. Slater brings something to his game that just keeps the opposition trying to second guess his moves. It will be a sad way to end his career, especially when far worse hasnt been acted upon this season. Just appreciate the skill of the man.
Now if my Bunnies get through tonight, well its a different story. Ban him!

Cheers Glen

They already have, what will the outcome be? I bet it just so happens to be what coinsides with what brings the most attention/drama. Initially gets charged but then gets let off on appeal, time will tell.

True,
They are wondering what his next dirty little trick will be

If Slater was charged with a similar offence in round 5 or 20 he and the Storm would have said guilty and we won't contest the charge, happy to take the 1 week.

Not sure what has changed. It is unfortunate that he may miss his last game but after all he should be treated no different to any other player, rules are rules for a reason.


With regards the player hit getting up and playing on, I don't think so, the very next play that same player (Vechie) was involved in, seen him taking off for the rest of the game with a busted right shoulder, the very shoulder slater hit. It may well have been enough to instigate the injury and all it took was for Vechie to fall on it and do the final damage, that we will never know.

The only issue is that he did not use that arm until after the first shoulder contact, he lead with the shoulder.
The arm came into play as a final shove.
I not sure the rule allows that.

I think in all forms the 30000000000 replays TV stations etc use hinder all sides at some stage..

slowing it down to 50000 frames a second isnt real.. Shit happens in a split second - watch it at real time and judge it on real time

Bloody great to be at the game and listen to the accolades from Slaters peers then get a laugh reading the sour grapes from the whinging minority

Tough to watch as a Souths Supporter to lose to the Roosters, only thing worse would be if it was in a GF.

Not that I fully understand league but why did Cooper Cronk stay on after half time? Couldn't kick, tackle or throw. To me it seemed that he was just risking a greater injury for very little gain.

Because he's a great play organiser, hes aways rallying the troops and he never shuts up behind play, they probably couldnt get him off anyway

He'll probably end up doing the same as Alfie does for the Broncos and Qld.

Anyone taking bets on the result?

Melbourne Storm confirms it will contest Billy Slater's charge at the NRL Judiciary.

The NRL Match Review Committee, on Saturday morning, charged Billy Slater with a grade one shoulder charge meaning even with an early guilty plea, Slater will miss one match.

The Match Review Committee charged Slater for a tackle on Cronulla's Sosaia Feki in the first half of Friday night's Preliminary Final at AAMI Park. Slater was penalised at the time, but not placed on report

Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi said," We are disappointed for Billy that he has been charged by the Match Review Committee. We must now focus on giving Billy the best chance of playing in Sunday's Grand Final, we have spoken with our defence team and feel we have a very strong case."

The Club will now await confirmation from the NRL on the day of the judiciary hearing.
