    Considering the NRL hasn't registered his new Cronulla contract I hope they take a hard stand here and say we won't register it until after his rugby contract and the 12 week ban starts from there

    I doubt that will happen as they were soft in the first place allowing cronulla to sack and resign him for 2-3 hundred thousand cheaper

    Wasn't Wendell just banned from the NRL? Or was he banned from all sports?

    totally agree.
    Considering the NRL doesnt let players play union overseas in the offseason, the ban should start when his contract is registered - how can you be suspended when you aren't under contract.

    its crazy, yeah wendell was banned from all forms of rugby for 2 years.
    Maybe the rules have changed since then.

    After signing with French rugby club Toulon on Wednesday morning, the NRL has made it clear that Ben Barba's 12 match ban won't begin until his overseas sporting commitments are over.

    With speculation swirling whether Barba's move abroad would allow him to simply walk back into the Sharks side mid-season, NRL CEO Todd Greenberg has said while Barba is free to play for Toulon, his ban won't start until he stops playing anywhere outside the NRL.

    This decision comes just hours after Barba himself said he may not play rugby league again.

    yeah fair enough. I think barba is saying that if the ban doesnt count while he away playing rugby, then he might not go back to league.

    It shouldnt count, and if thats the way he thinks - good riddance barba

    So some sharks got a 12 month ban back dated so they only missed 3 games

    Barba gets a 12 week ban that will be posted dated so he misses a whole season.

    I love me some NRL consistency

    Undoubtedly inconsistent - but at least it is an attempt at a square-up...

    Mind you, much like the referee's (particularly the NSW biased SOO ref's)......it's a pitiful attempt at a fair and even square-up.

    Basically it's akin to a consolation penalty 80m out from the tryline, after they have already gifted one team the GF (which they did in this instance by allowing the Sharks to cheat).

    That reminded me I must be due for my yearly laugh but I can't find him anymore. Has the toss blocked me or just changed his handle?
