It's not 5 weeks. It's 1 week with an early guilty plea, or 2 weeks if he contests and is found guilty.
The media has also been fairly vocal about it - e.g. the Sterlo clip posted on this forum - so I don't think it's fair to say they've been silent on it.
I agree that it's bollocks that he's been charged at all, but let's not make it sound worse than it really is.
JOSH CURRAN HANDED CONTROVERSIAL CHARGE FOR JENNINGS HITWarriors backrower Josh Curran has been hit with a grade two careless high tackle charge for a hit on Storm winger George Jennings.
The tackle caused a mass furore, with Curran sin-binned for what many claimed was just a head clash between the two players.
Curran now faces a lengthy ban of up to five weeks on the sidelines if he opts to challenge the charge and fails, however it won't be a surprise to see the Warriors take that risk given the arguments in Curran's favour
