Gallen annoyed at NRL ban
By Roje Adaimy

Paul Gallen claims that the NRL is effectively punishing him twice for his now-infamous State of Origin punch on Nate Myles, and has called for changes to the league's judiciary system.
The Cronulla skipper will miss Sunday's final round clash with Canberra after taking the early guilty plea to a grade one dangerous contact charge for a crusher tackle on North Queensland's Scott Bolton on Sunday.
While the charge itself does not automatically attract a suspension, loading and 38 carry-over points from Gallen's Origin II melee with Queenslander Myles pushed the charge over the threshold for a one-match ban.
"That's something that I'm a bit annoyed about," Gallen said on Wednesday.
"It is disappointing for my club, the fact that I was suspended for the Origin incident - I missed a game back then because of that - and now later on in the year, at a pretty important time, that's what's tipped me over the edge.
"A grade one would've only gotten me 70 or 80 points or something. I would've taken the early guilty plea and been fine to play. But obviously now I can't because of what happened earlier in the year.
"I think that needs to be looked at.
"It definitely needs a change."
Gallen said even though the round 26 match against the Raiders won't have any bearing on the Sharks' position on the NRL ladder going into the finals series, the fact he was cited had been upsetting.
"Me not playing this week, I'm not too concerned about it. I'm a bit upset at the charge though," he said.
"I can understand I've been charged with a grade one, but I mean I've been playing for well over 200 games and probably made 30 or 40 tackles a game and never been involved in a tackle like this.
"It was purely accidental and some times these things happen in a game.
"But anyway, I'll cop a week for it and just get on with it in round one of the semis."


only one thing to say really - BOOO HOOO

Dirty prick could have broken the players neck in that Crusher tackle.

Lifted him up and crunched down on his spine.

He was lucky to just get one week IMO, and that seems to be the general feeling over here.

He should get 6 weeks at least, no make that 10.
That was no accident.
This is an example of a problem that exists, intentional contact with the head or neck in the wrestle.
I am afraid that we will have to wait until someone is seriously hurt before it is eliminated.
Problem is referees only penalise if the initial contact is with the head, or if there is an obvious grapple or crusher.
They are ignoring the grabbing of the head and neck to lever the player or assist in wrestling the player to the ground
Watched a 1985 test match replay on You Tube and there was none of this rubbish
Made for faster play the balls and a better game
