Monster ban and fines for Dragons partygoers

  Monster ban and fines for Dragons partygoers The NRL has slapped the 13 Dragons players caught up in the now-infamous house party COVID breach with monster fines, totaling $305,000. Each player has also been handed breach notices by the league that will translate into time on the sidelines.The notice handed to Paul Vaughan, who hosted the party at his place of residence, proposes an eight-match suspension and a fine of $50,000. It takes into account Vaughan's prior biosecurity breach in 2020 and the fact that he withheld key information from the Integrity Unit.

NRL legend ranks each team 1-16 after round eight. The Eels have returned to top spot, but don't start thinking it is time to question the Roosters. Not much changed in round eight and I still believe this year' s competition is a race among four or five. There are a few sides jostling to make up the eight at the moment, but no one new has announced themselves in the top echelon.

Rugby league greats Brad Fittler and Peter Sterling have questioned the power of club trainers after the Panthers forced play to stop with the Eels in attacking territory.

Penrith last night edged out the Eels 8-6 in a semi-final thriller in Mackay.

Late in the game with less than five minutes remaining, the Eels were in a position to take advantage of a 12-man Penrith defensive line after Mitch Kenny was left on the turf behind the play.

Kenny's ankle appeared to get twisted while making a tackle on Eels big man Reagan Campbell-Gillard.

Under current rules, club trainers can request for the referee to stop play if there's a serious injury or safety concern.

Under the NRL ' s policy, games have been stopped more regularly for injuries in 2019 in a directive aimed at player safety. On-field officials are now required to stop play following the next tackle if they see indicators of a head injury or other serious injury concerns. Referees can also be alerted by a team trainer , with the match to be paused regardless of whether the injured player is at risk of being caught up in play. Trainers were warned by the NRL earlier this year they could be removed from the field if the rule was abused.

Fittler argued there was no "safety issue" and questioned why there was a need for the game to stop.

The stoppage allowed Kenny to come from the field with Tevita Pangai Junior coming on as his replacement.

"This is Mitch Kenny when he got a twisted ankle and Pangai Junior came on for him," Fittler said during Nine's post-game coverage.

"I am still uncertain with the interchange that went on with Pangai Junior.

"The fact is, he was behind the play. It wasn't a safety issue, it was an ankle injury.

"You wonder why the game had to be stopped."

Meanwhile, Sterling said the stoppage of play was a timely rest for the Panthers, who had defended a number of attacking sets in the lead-up.

"That is frustrating and I completely understand Brad's frustration with that. It is a kind of game where both teams are going to have complaints," Sterling replied.

"So many things happened and so many turning points. I'm sure Ivan Cleary would be uncomfortable with some of the things that happened out there

"That was late in the game when you are on a roll, it is third tackle.

"The worst thing that can happen to you with the football in your hand is for the opposition to get a rest.

Fittler then questioned whether the NRL has given too much power to trainers and coaches.

"When did the game give the power to trainers, who are totally controlled by coaches, to be able to stop a game," Fittler said. "That has got to be taken away."

Sterling added: "There was also a stoppage tonight where a defending player was in the attacking line getting his knee strap."

"You can't stop for those things.

"So there are frustrations in the game. I am frustrated with Blake Ferguson being down for a crusher tackle and when he gets a penalty, he bounces up to go on with it. You can't do things like that - you can't have it both ways."

NRL grand final will be a 'once-in-a-lifetime' event for Brisbane's Lang Park .
This year's NRL season has put an unprecedented workload on staff at Lang Park, who plan to make the historic Queensland grand final unforgettable.But with capacity for just 52,000 people at the historic Queensland NRL grand final on October 3, it'll fail in comparison to record crowds seen in the past: 107,999 in 1999 at Sydney Olympic Park being the benchmark.
