“There’ll be Hawk-Eye on your Boobs!” | Marto Reacts to Bill Harrigan’s New Tackling Proposal
THE BIG BREAKFAST WITH MARTO AND MARGAUX
Every man and his dog have their opinion on what the NRL should do about head-high tackling. Now a new voice has entered the throng and it’s come from a surprisingly sensible place.
Former revered referee Bill Harrigan has offered a solution that would see all tackling performed below the nipple-line, thus vastly decreasing the risk of head-high contact.
This morning on The Big Breakfast with Marto and Margaux host Greg Martin teed off on the ten-time Grand Final referee’s proposal.
“So, every jersey now will have to have your nipples drawn on the outside with a dotted line!” Martin joked.
Harrigan officiated 393 games between 1986 and 2003. Twenty-one players will be missing for this weekend’s round of football has a result of high-tackles.
