What on earth was Andrian Morley thinking? In the 68th minute of tonight's 0-25 whitewash to the Bulldogs, Adrian Morley did what plenty of other NRL players have probably wanted to do for years; he kneed Bulldogs hooker Corey Hughes in the lower abdomen whilst Hughes was playing the ball 1 metre out from the line.

Morley's brainsnap saw him sent from the field for the second season in the row against the Bulldogs at Telstra Stadium. Referee Jarred Maxwell consulted with touch judge Pat Reynolds before dismissing Morley.

Morley is likely to be charged with a high grade Contrary Conduct charge by the NRL Match Review Committee. The incident was an absolute disgrace and should attract a Grade 4-5 charge, effectively ending Adrian Morley's NRL and Roosters career.

For a player who's been surrrounded by controversy as a result of his playing style, it would be somewhat poetic if his career is ended by a lengthy suspension. Whilst it's a different type of infringement to the John Hopoate flying king hit or Danny Williams thugish punch, it deserves as much punishment.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs have made it 4 wins straight to stay in second spot. A bye next week ensures they will remain in the Top 4 at a minimum, and are likely to retain second spot on for and against.

A full match report will follow shortly.

yeh willie has matured a lot but also he does have a lot of respect for adrian morley. im not saying he is scared of him but he reveres him as a fellow forward.
morley has the same kind of respect as ruben wiki. i would hate to see that as morley's last nrl game. he is one of the few roosters i like.

And he gave Morley a nice little man hug.

LOL. Well Morley probably deserves to get this charge. It was a low count act of silliness and yes thumbs up to WIllie for not doing anything to make the situation worse although personally I would have hit Morley myself! Grrr...you'd think he ought to have learnt his lesson over the years after getting suspended and things...geeze.
He may be a great guy in the field when he competes well and things; but this among all things is what make some people dislike him and probably make others happy he's going.

Gee, there talking about 18 weeks for Morley, thats ridiculous!!!
Suspend him for the season & the finals if need be but seriously this has been blown out of proportion, Corey Hughes wasn't even hurt or injured & he won't even miss a week due to injury. Morlery deserves to start at his new club not suspended. Hopate got 12 for dead set pollaxing Galloway & neary paralyised him, you can't tell me Morleys hit is in the same class as that. 8 weeks seems fair.

And Danny Williams got 17 for punching Mark O'Neill square in the face, Morley was stupid but it shouldn't be as much as 18 weeks.
