This act should not go unpunished IMO. This is a low act and anybody with any advanced martial arts training knows why this has no place on a footy field. Should be charged with misconduct. Minimum 3 weeks for me, I would have zero issue if it were 5 or 6.

What? 5-6 weeks for something that could have happened? Laughable.
Look at rear view. Gunstan cutting him off zig-zagging and Smith went to ground taking Gunstan with him.

What's laughable is that you think it's 0 weeks.

Yes. Gunston was shepherding him away from a teammate. Smith then grabbed Gunston and took his legs out.

Does Smith have “advanced martial arts training”
You may be attributing him with more skill than he has. From behind it could just as easily be he changed one direction to get around Gunston then had to readjust and go the other way, lost balance and took Gunston with him.

That is an action that should have the potential to cause injury clause attached. Minimum 1 but i think 2 would be appropriate

Greene or Sicily would have got 2 weeks.

I wonder if Christian will just do fines for the rest of the year. The Tribunal is going to overturn everything anyway.

Based on last week with Lynch, anything less than the chair is soft.

Whatever he gets will be overturned at the tribunal though.

Should have gotten at least a week or two, just sweeping someones leg out from underneath them is extremely dangerous.
