Adam Blair Lucky To Get One Week Suspension, Says Matty Johns
Adam Blair's illegal tackle, Fox Sports
Matty Johns says West Tigers Adam Blair was lucky to get a one week suspension for what Gorden Tallis labelled a "cowardly act."
"It's probably one of the most mean-spirited things in the game," Matty said of Blair's unnecessary twisting of Josh Morris' leg on Friday night.
Matty Johns agreed with Gorden Tallis who told Fox Sports it was a "cowardly act."
"You're trying to be tough and it's when two people are on it. I don't like it, it's like a cowardly act," Gordy told Fox Sports directly.
Matty Johns furthered this saying Blair "definitely deserves more than one week," and that the game should stamp the leg twisting out labelling it "an absolute mug act."
The NRL judiciary ruled his action illegal despite Blair contesting the charge during Friday night's Tigers Vs Bulldogs clash.
