Issac Luke will likely have just three games left in Warriors colours after his unsuccessful challenge of a dangerous tackle charge landed him a three-week Claims of inconsistency have been levelled at the MRC over the differences between gradings for each of the tackles by Luke, Cotric and Trbojevic .

Warriors hooker Issac Luke and Manly lock Jake Trbojevic were both involved in tackles that went above the horizontal, both put on report and both Trbojevic is a blue-eyed boy in Sydney league circles, an Origin hero, a Kangaroos representative and one of two brothers playing for a glamour

Cotric is currently serving a three-week suspension for a similar tackle on St George Illawarra centre Tim Lafai.

“Ricky said they got one right and one wrong, they got both wrong in my opinion,” Gallen said on Channel 9’s 100% Footy on Monday night.

“Cotric was dealt with way too harshly, shouldn’t have been sent off … it was a bad one, it’s an accident but deservedly suspended.

“Three weeks is harsh but the other one by Trbojevic - and we all love Jake Trbojevic, no one would bag Jake Trbojevic as a bloke and he hasn’t got this in his game at all.

“… I agree it’s an accident but it ends up bad, and he should have been suspended for it.”

Gallen declared the match review committee also got their decision to charge New Zealand Warriors hooker Issac Luke with a grade two dangerous throw wrong.

Manly Warringah Sea Eagles are pleased to announce the re-signing of Jake Trbojevic and Tom Trbojevic for a further six years. Off contract at the start of next season, Jake and Tom have secured their playing future at the Sea Eagles until at least the end of 2026.

Luke up-ended Parramatta Eels five-eighth Dylan Brown in the 69th minute of the Warriors’ controversial 24-22 loss on Saturday.

The veteran rake will contest the charge at the NRL judiciary on Tuesday night and is risking a two-week suspension if found guilty.

“When you look at Issac Luke … he’s going to miss up to two weeks for his one and this guy (Trbojevic) misses nothing for that one,” Gallen fumed.

“… I actually think Trbojevic’s is worse than that one (Luke’s), that’s not a bad tackle.

“It only goes wrong at the very last moment, he (Brown) actually lands on his shoulder.

“I think Trbojevic’s is worse than that one and I think Jake’s very lucky.

“And look (Warriors coach) Stephen Kearney must be pulling his hair out because he’s had a lot of things go against him the last couple of weeks, that’s for sure.”
