    Waters should really have nothing to worry about right? Surely..

    I disagree.

    Came off the line, player was barely going to impact the play, shirt front and opened him up. Was groggy. He could be saved with Neeld in his presso saying it was just a fair bump and good effort and thats what Grimes told him. However i dont think any coaches or players are about to dob in any players and the match review will know this.

    I also think Pav will get one week. Clearly hit the head. Was very groggy.

    1-2 weeks waters, maybe 2 with bad record (unsure what his record is)

    1 to Pav

    I think Waters may be in trouble only becuase similar ones have gotten a week or so last year. I dont believe he should be but I reckon a week, plus a bad record(?) for waters wont help.

    and all of that you just wrote means squat as far as the MRP is concerned.

    Aslong as it is classed as within 5 metres of the ball and no high contact then it should be fine.

    Pretty sure you will find it does. The severity of injury to the player certainly comes into play. As does distance and whether or not the player was deemed to be in the play. That last one will mean whether its 2 or 1 IMO.

    Waters wont get a week he didn't hit him in the head. Quality fair hit.

    No point guessing the MRP's decision, we all know its almost akin to a lottery anyway.

    Waters' prior record certainly won't help if they deem there was sufficient force to constitute a reportable offence. If there was insufficient force, we're all good to go for next week. If there was sufficient force, you wait and see how the MRP classifies it.

    Little point speculating about these sorts of things. Frankly, I'd be happy for Waters to be given 1 week.

    With the MRP who knows?

    The classic example being Judd opening up a massive cut under Pavlich's eyes requiring stitches a couple of years ago not being classified as 'sufficient force'.

    The MRP is a lottery, like I said.

    WC fans and people with Waters in their team fighting the good fight that Waters will get off lol.

    Don't think the MRP read BF. Actually, I don't think they can read period.

    Injuryupdate is a piece of shit site that is never "up-to-date".

    Magner's ankle injury was after the round 1 game.

    Ideally none.

    Use them as a very loose guide only and wait until teams are announced before making any final decisions.

    Beau Waters 125 points for hit which warrants a week but by his surprising good record only gets a 93.75 reprimand and can play next week.

    Don't know how Pavlich got off with nothing if Waters got a reprimand.

    We're still deciding whether to challenge it or not, though.

    We have GWS next week and the lure is there to challenge it.

    Yeah great point

    That is a fairly big lure especially considering Worsfold didn't shy away from saying it is a possible round to rest older players. You would think guys like Glass, Cox, Embley (injured) and Waters come under that category for the eagles and also Kerr.

    Edit: For those who have Smedts, got injured today and in doubt for next week.
