'It's discrimination against something so minor': Australian soldiers facing the sack for growing beards say the Army needs to 'change with the times'

'It's discrimination against something so minor': Australian soldiers facing the sack for growing beards say the Army needs to 'change with the times' The Townsville-based men have been unshaven for more than five years due to skin irritations after being forced to wash in dirty and unhygienic conditions while deployed. The board of the Australian Defence Department is now deciding if the soldier's beards should end their service. Both soldiers were recommended by medical authorities to grow beards after experiencing skin conditions. One of the soldiers developed a condition known as foliculitis, where the hair follicles become inflamed. He claims having no access to clean water, yet still being made to shave everyday, resulted in his skin problems.

Raiders forward Hudson Young is facing a whopping seven game ban after being charged for an alleged eye gouge in Canberra's tense win over the Bulldogs. Young made his NRL debut back in round three and previously served an 18-month ban for a positive drugs test as a teenager.

Canberra forward Hudson Young is facing a minimum five-week NRL ban for an alleged eye gouge on Canterbury's Aiden Tolman.

The 20-year-old was charged for a first-half incident in which his hand made contact with the Bulldogs prop's face.

Tolman reeled out of the tackle, clutching at his eye and complained to the on-field referees.

"I asked Hudson what it was. And he put his hand on his face did he? I don't know," Raiders coach Ricky Stuart said after the match.

Young found a supporter in Cronulla veteran Paul Gallen, who believes the second-rower has been treated harshly.

"I didn't think he'd get that much, to be honest. I thought that he'd be charged for it, I thought he might cop a week or two," Gallen said on the Sunday Footy Show.

"There's no doubt that he's attacked the face there, but his knee gets in the way. You can't actually see exactly what he's done.

"I thought it would be a dangerous contact, some sort of charge that might get him two or three weeks. But seven weeks is a big charge.

Cowboys' McGuire facing largest NRL fine: Brave Cowboys grind NRL win over Titans A brave and undermanned North Queensland have held Canberra forward Hudson Young is facing a minimum five-week NRL ban for an alleged eye gouge on Canterbury's Aiden Tolman.

"The trouble is, he did it on Aiden Tolman. Aiden Tolman's a tough front-rower, but he's also one of the nicest front-rowers in the game.

"Had he done it on me or Andrew Fifita, it probably would have been our fault! Aiden Tolman, he doesn't stay down, he doesn't blow up at anything - and he blew up straight away and said he got eye-gouged.

"It obviously doesn't matter if Aiden Tolman wants to go on with it [or not]. We've seen earlier in this season, Josh McGuire did something similar, the player didn't want to go on with it, so I think he was given a fine and that was it."

Earlier in the year, North Queensland forward McGuire escaped scrutiny for an alleged eye gouge on Cameron Munster after the Melbourne five-eighth declined to make an on-field complaint.

McGuire was charged with contrary conduct and escaped with a $3350 fine.

South Sydney prop George Burgess also missed the opening three games of the NRL season and one Test after being found guilty of an eye-gouge on Dallin Watene-Zelezniak last year.
