NSW should have had 12 men and QLD 13. Total farce and the refs are scared to make things uneven. Nobody should be sent off in origin unless they endanger another players life (spear tackle etc). Nobody has ever been permanently injured from an on field fight for ****s sake. They are big boys. I would like to see the ice hockey rules brought it. The two guys fighting are left to go one on one, the refs let them wear themselves out and then they both have a 5 cool down.
The soccer moms wouldnt like that
