    Guerra looks set to appeal the charge placed on Hodges.

    I love Hodges and would love to see him play, but the NRL really need to show some consistency.

    If they are serious about it he should get a week, any attempt by his mate to get him off should mean nothing.
    A semi related gripe of mine is the RLPA bleating about player welfare but the players do nothing to help each other, I understand accidents happen with lifting tackles but if the players wanted to they could stop crushers and chicken wings tomorrow.

    Personally dislike Hodges as a player, think he is a grub who never got what was coming to him (maybe this is it). But as a sportsfan I must say it does have a nice story to have your final game be in the GF.

    But, just because it is your final game should not give you preferential treatment. He should be punished the same way someone would in week 1, 10 or week 20. If he is banned from playing it is a shame for him but completely deserved and I am sick of seeing all this fucking pansies on facebook posts commenting that it would be unfair for him to miss his final game and that he has had such a big career that he deserves this. Yes it would be nice for him to go out in a GF but then maybe he shouldn't have put himself in a position to be suspended by lifting Guerra's legs

    Absolute bullshit. 10 mins to make a decision.
    I agree minor offences should be a fine and not a suspension but that isn't the rule
    Inconsistency at it's finest

    Hodges: Not guilty sir!
    Judge: Your reasoning?
    Hodges: Guerra is a Queenslander, Sir!
    Judge: So?
    Hodges: It means he's a diving, milking, cheating sook!
    Judge: Anything else in your defence?
    Hodges: I've already missed over 7 seasons in my career either suspended, or suffering an injury like a heartilidge!
    Ex-Bronco Judge: FREE TO PLAY!

    Surprised he didn't get knocked out Friday night. Was it Maloney he pointed his finger at 3 times in 20 seconds, can't remember but deadset, whoever it was showed A LOT of patience and restraint.

    That's Hodges bread and butter. Try start shit with someone smaller, while standing right next to the ref usually, knowing full well they won't do anything about it and if they do then ol Third Man In Thaiday will come save him. Maloney likely knocked him out in his mind then went home and Fap

    I believe Maloney refers to that as BBQing alone

    Total fucking disgrace. How that happens is beyond me, then NRL has the most inconsistent judicial system in the world. I wouldn't mind so much if it wasn't such a total grub getting the rub of the green.

    How on earth is Chris Mckenna allowed to be on the panel judging the fate of his mate?

    So because Guerra was jumping in the tackle it is his fault not Hodges. Not sure why people were upset with McLean then when McKinnon shouldn't have put his head into a dangerous position.

    The meme getting around comparing Gurgess' 2 weeks for pegging a water bottle vs Hodges getting off his charge are on point. Yes, Gurgess did a reckless and stupid thing, but so did Hodges, and the dumb prick did it a week out from his GF fairytale game.

    To me it deserved a penalty and no more. I mean, Josh Reynolds dropping Tate on his head in origin last week was a grade 1, and this was nothing as serious as that.

    I would actually challenge anyone to identify a grade 1 suspension that was as innocuous as what Hodges did.
