In my opinion, Thruston should have been suspended. Everyone is saying how it would wreak finals footy and all that crap but. It don't matter whether its the 1st round or the finals, or whether he is the comps "best" player, or whether the cowboys would totally suck without him. None of that matters. It was clear he lifted the play past the horizontal (illegal) and it clear that that is an illegal tackle. With all the emotion about grappel tackles, what about spear tackles. I mean, ok your pulling or twisting a player's neck, yet with spear tackles your dropping a player on his head with ( for Koopu's case) about 102kg falling after it. I'm a Queensland supporter, but if they aren't going to suspend JT for that tackle, then they aren't going to suspend anyone. If Koopu had done the same to JT, wouldn't there be an uproar?
