Graham Found GUILTY

Wade Graham’s fight for his first Blues jersey is over.

He has been found guilty of a Grade 1 careless high tackle by the NRL judiciary and will not play next Wednesday night against Queensland.

In a very tense hearing, that went over an hour, Wade Graham was grilled by the NRL judiciary panel.

According to Graham he was “trying to aim for the ball to dislodge the football in the wet conditions.

"It was too late to adjust and too late to move. There's no time to adjust and he drops right in front of me,” he said.

"I've tried to go to ground with him. It glances off the top of his arm and pushes my arm even higher. It's unavoidable." Watch the video below.

Graham had carryover points from a similar offence - 33 points - and with an early guilty plea, which carried 84 points, that added up to more than 100 and therefore that is why he had to fight the charge tonight.

St George Illawarra youngster Tyson Frizell or Warriors veteran Ryan Hoffman are the likely candidates to receive a call-up to replace him.

So the judiciary let off that grub Souths forward scot free but rub Graham out.

More official bias against one of the NRL marketing's "black hat teams"  emthdown

For those that missed it....

Cronulla Sharks beat Warriors 19-18 in golden point for 11th-straight NRL win

James Maloney has booted Cronulla to its 11th-straight NRL victory with the Sharks scoring a 19-18 golden-point win over the Warriors.

Without regular field-goal kicker Valentine Holmes in the line-up, five-eighth Maloney was put under plenty of pressure as he lined up his shot in the second period of extra time, but managed to sneak a wobbly kick between the uprights.

Maloney has made a habit of kicking the Sharks to victory recently, with his trusty right boot playing match-winner against the Dragons and Bulldogs.

The Sharks are now four points clear of second-placed Melbourne on the ladder, with the Storm to play the Tigers on Sunday.

Cronulla probably should have won Saturday night's game in the first minute of golden point after ex-Warrior Chad Townsend broke the line and found full-back Ben Barba on his inside, but the resurgent Barba could not handle the pass.

The ladder leaders aimed up in defence and pinned the Warriors, who were on a run of three successive wins, in their own half for most of golden point at Shark Park.

The visitors had kicked out to a 10-0 lead with tries to former Sharks Blake Ayshford and Jono Wright.

Sharks roll on. Sharks & Storm have both only lost 2 & 3 respectively which has made the season more interesting.
Titans won again which puts them in the 8. They were million to one at start of year with a big broom going thru the player ranks. Into 100/1 now & looking stonger as the season progresses.

Ben Ikin: Sharks should chase Robbie Farah as replacement for Michael Ennis

CRONULLA could have their cake and eat it too when it comes to replacing Michael Ennis in the No. 9 jumper thanks to the potentially bargain basement price attached to Robbie Farah.

Farah’s name was immediately put to coach Shane Flanagan following Ennis’ shock retirement announcement, and the Sharks mentor was coy on making a play for the disgruntled Wests Tigers veteran after the 2016 season.

Fox Sports revealed on Tuesday that Cronulla has already poached another out-of-favour Tigers rake with Manaia Cherrington being lured to The Shire on a two-year deal.

Flanagan has spoken highly of the young talent at the Sharks with utility Nu Brown and Australian Schoolboy brothers Jayden and Blayke Brailey already on the books and being groomed for the hooking role.

But Farah is now again long odds to remain at Concord after being dropped to reserve grade, and the Tigers have previously indicated their willingness to cover a significant portion of his $900,000 salary to move him on.

Should be a good game tonite.
The Titans are moving up the 8 , improving their position & will be hungry to be the ones to stop the run of Sharks record number of wins.

Great game, titans were always going to be a big chance of knocking the sharks off.
Sharks only just had their measure early in the season and the titans have been improving every week.
The one point from the draw will make it a lot easier for them to make the finals

Sharks were the better side I thought and only the home town refereeing let the Titans into the game.

Penalties only 11-6.

There would have been some punters crying at the FootyTAB margins. Only a few live tickets riding on the last match & divs of $3k for either team 1-12.
A Draw meant it Jackpotted to next week as no live tickets on the draw.

Think you can put a pen through the Sharks now as potential premiers. The game was there to be taken last night but the Sharks looked void of ideas and poise when it was needed. Maloney went missing for the last 20 minutes and Townsend doesn't look like the sort of half that can lead a side to a grand final win. They will go deep into September but the porch light will still be lit come dark on the first Sunday in October.

Cronulla Sharks five-eighth James Maloney faces three-week NRL ban

Cronulla star James Maloney claims Konrad Hurrell admitted trying to milk a penalty from the incident that's casting a shadow over the Sharks' NRL minor premiership ambitions.

Maloney faces a ban of up to three matches after being charged with grade-two dangerous contact for his 88th-minute tackle on giant Titans centre Hurrell during Monday night's thrilling 18-18 draw.

The NSW State of Origin playmaker can cop a two-game suspension with an early guilty plea, however he has been so influential this season that any time on the sidelines will be a major blow to high-flying Cronulla.

Maloney wrapped his arms around a standing Hurrell's left leg before bringing him down awkwardly by driving his shoulder into the back and side of his leg as he was held by another tackler.

An upset Hurrell stayed down, allowing the bunker to review the 88th-minute incident, however the tackle went unpenalised and the centre played on strongly, though he appeared ginger at times.

Maloney said he initially feared his former Warriors teammate had suffered an injury.

"I actually started getting worried for him, obviously knowing him," Maloney told Triple M NRL.

"I actually thought, 'I hope he hasn't done anything'. He comes over to me afterwards and goes, `They didn't give me a penalty'.


http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/rugby-league/cronulla-sharks/cronulla-sharks-fiveeighth-james-maloney-faces-threeweek-nrl-ban-20160802-gqj0ro.html

So it is reviewed on field at the time and no penalty is given.

Hurrell admits to Maloney he was trying to milk a penalty.

All of a sudden the NRL decides it is worthy of 3 weeks.

Here we go again. The contrivance of the premiership. Who have they decided is going to win this year? North Queensland? Gold Coast? Those advertising revenues in Queensland must need a boost again.

Cowboys only QLD team that can win this year with Storm, Sharks & now Raiders filling the Top4 spots.

IMO that would be a dream result for the NRL administrators, 1 team from each State/Territory with a chance to win.
