I'll be terribly disappointed if Parramatta lose from here, 18-4 up with 60 minutes to go and Cleary has been sent off.

Cleary should get three weeks at least for that tackle, that didn't look good at all.

Best half of footy I've seen from Parramatta in a long long time, perhaps going as far back as 2009. Or round 15.:)

Total domination after Penrith started on fire. Some are going to say we are only dominating because Cleary was sent off, but we were already 12-4 ahead and had the Panthers on the back foot, making easy metres on every play before he was sent off. Cleary's send off has just meant that Penrith doesn't have an avenue to make a comeback. At least not without Parramatta self destructing, which is possible if you have been watching them this season, but unlikely tonight.

Really disappointing second half from Parramatta, we are letting a team that is a player down dictate tempo.

Absolutely disgusting performance in the second half. Bunch of mental short people

Paul Gallen get in the bin mate, I know Cleary is your NSW man but come on mate.
It’s a Grade 3 everyday of the week but watch them give it a Grade 2.
Surely as his second offence this year he gets a extra week too

I'm not sure about that, Fox have shown all the dangerous tackle send offs this season I think it sits closer to Grade 2. I won't be surprised if they call it a Grade 3, but I won't be surprised either if they call it a Grade 2.

The charge sheet will be interesting. I'm thinking it'll be a grade 2. NAS should be looking at 2 weeks at least and King 3 to 4 for the gouge which shockingly went unpunished on the day.

Grade 3 it is


Cleary was charged with a Grade Three Dangerous Throw offence, which will see the halfback sidelined for five matches with an early guilty plea, or six weeks if he unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the judiciary.

That's deplorable commentary, they are the ones that should be sent off. To say that "that is how he is" like Cleary is grub is just pathetic. I have a little more respect for the Aussie commentators after listening to that crap, at least they are a little circumspect and rational. That was totally over the top.

That original commentary was from an old English game. Wigan is involved I think.

Not unhappy with a grade 3, we will learn a fair bit about the Panthers over the next month with both Luai and Cleary out.
