NRL News: Klein dropped but result won't be reversed - V'landys, Eels rally around Arthur after fans boo rookie

  NRL News: Klein dropped but result won't be reversed - V'landys, Eels rally around Arthur after fans boo rookie Ashley Klein has paid the price for his bunker blunder in the Cowboys’ controversial win over the Wests Tigers on Sunday by being dropped for Round 20. Klein, who advised on-field referee Chris Butler to award North Queensland the match-winning penalty, has been left off all appointments for the eight matches. It is a swift plummet down the pecking order for Klein who refereed all three State of Origin matches. ARL Commission chairman Peter V’landys has left the door open for the NRL to overturn Wests Tigers’ controversial loss to North Queensland, but says the prospect is extremely unlikely.

Late in the Wests Tigers' upset win over the Broncos, Carrigan applied pressure to Jackson Hastings' lower leg in a tackle that may have ended the playmaker's season.

Placed on report, Carrigan avoided the sin bin on Saturday night but was referred next morning straight to the judiciary without having the option to enter a plea.

Carrigan faces lengthy ban for 'horrendous' tackle on Hastings as Tigers put dent in Broncos' top-four hopes

  Carrigan faces lengthy ban for 'horrendous' tackle on Hastings as Tigers put dent in Broncos' top-four hopes Broncos star Patrick Carrigan is facing the prospect of missing the rest of the regular season through suspension after being referred straight to the NRL judiciary for his “horrendous” hip-drop tackle on Jackson Hastings in Saturday night’s upset loss to the Wests Tigers. He will front the judiciary on Tuesday night to face the dangerous conduct charge for a tackle in the 73rd minute The Tigers lock limped off and was on crutches on the sidelines after the game with fears he has suffered a syndesmosis injury and will not play again this year. Interim coach Brett Kimmorley was fuming over the incident.

On Tuesday night, he will appear before the two-man judiciary panel which could take the severity of Hastings' injury into account as it determines Carrigan's penalty.

Carrigan is in career-best form and any long-term suspension could jeopardise the Broncos' hopes of securing a top-four finish and a double chance in the finals series.

With the loss to the Tigers, Brisbane slipped to fifth but are on the same number of competition points as the sides directly above and below them on the ladder.

Elsewhere, South Sydney look set to be without Tom Burgess for next week's match against the Warriors after he was hit with a grade-two careless high-tackle charge.

Burgess also became the first South Sydney player to be sent off since Jaiman Lowe in 2007 after the tackle on Cronulla's Ronaldo Mulitalo.

Pat Carrigan faces lengthy ban for NASTY tackle on Jackson Hastings

  Pat Carrigan faces lengthy ban for NASTY tackle on Jackson Hastings Broncos star Pat Carrigan is in line for a lengthy ban for a nasty tackle on Jackson Hastings, which could derail Brisbane's premiership bid while the Tigers star faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines. The Queensland prop was referred straight to the NRL judiciary for a hip-drop tackle on Hastings on Saturday in Wests' shock 32-18 win at Suncorp Stadium.Carrigan avoided the sin bin but was place on report and will appear before the two-man panel on Tuesday.

Having already been penalised three times in the game, Burgess was given his marching orders during extra-time, opening the door for the Sharks to capitalise on the extra-man advantage and seal victory with a field goal.

Burgess can accept a one-match ban with an early guilty plea but risks missing two games by taking his case to the judiciary.

Canberra prop Joseph Tapine has escaped suspension for allegedly striking Gold Coast's Aaron Booth but has been charged with contrary conduct for his role in sparking a scuffle between the sides on Saturday.

Referee Ben Cummins sent Tapine to the sin bin just before half-time after he appeared to throw a punch at Booth, who Tapine claimed had targeted him with a cannonball tackle.

But bunker referee Casey Badger cleared the contact and only Tapine was punished on-field. Tapine can accept a $1,000 fine.
