Miers actually took his eyes off the player with the ball, turned his attentions to Houli, stepped off the line of the mark and deliberately moved into Houli's way. It was not intentional as Houli never lined Miers up. Houli was trying for the over the top handball. If anything, Miers was the one who initiated the intentional contact by trying to block Houli from running on to get a handball receive.

A raised elbow is almost always considered intentional, plus it's off the ball.

Let's be serious if Greene did that we would be racing to be the most outraged,, but it's a well liked player so Miers must be a diving dog.

If Greene was considered low impact for the faintest of touches, if MRO is consistent, Houli is in trouble.

But it's Richmond and a GF so nothing will happen, they will probably say he was going for the ball.

When watching/listening to the game wearing headphones, you can hear BT and Bruce sniggering at Gryan's fosbury flop.
Embarrassing dive. He should be fined and harden up. Hopefully Chris Scott has a quiet word to the young glass jaw........which we all know he won't. That was right up there with Dangers disgraceful dive.
