According to Sam Edmund they will be charging him essentially with bumping too hard. absolutely farcical to have gone this far and shows how inept they are currently at head office huge clear out needed
They couldnt successfully prosecute a case against a guy who was clearly guilty, so now they double down on their incompetence by prosecuting a guy who literally followed the rules.
He chose to bump and made body on body contact. There was no head contact therefore he is not responsible for what comes next.
The only times they have ever penalised someone for a "fair" bump is when they have bumped a player in to a fence or a goal/behind post. I cant think of a time ever when a body on body bump saw a penalty.
