Re­view panel probes bit­ing al­le­ga­tion

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

AN al­leged bite from Mel­bourne’s Jesse Bromwich on St Ge­orge Illawarra star Josh Du­gan will be a pri­or­ity case for the NRL match re­view com­mit­tee to­day as it in­ves­ti­gates at least five in­ci­dents out of Round 20.

Bromwich was put on re­port over the al­le­ga­tion from the NSW full­back in the 69th minute of the Storm’s win in Napier on Satur­day night.

Du­gan im­me­di­ately pointed to his arm as he freed him­self from the Kiwi Test prop’s tackle. He com­plained dur­ing a break in play to ref­eree Matt Cecchin.

Wests Tigers prop Martin Tau­pau’s swing­ing arm on James Maloney late in Syd­ney Roost­ers’ 33- 8 win on Fri­day night will also be scru­ti­nised.

Tau­pau was put on re­port and sin- binned.

A late shot from Bris­bane’s Adam Blair on Gold Coast play­maker Kane El­gey in the Bron­cos’ big win on Fri­day night will also be looked at by match re­view co- or­di­na­tor Michael Buet­tner and his team.
