    Wait with interest on the outcome of the judiciary on this one

    RWA has an opportunity to send a message but I fear they will slap the perpetrator on the wrist

    If we simply look at the judiciary outcome without the benefit of knowing what transpired at the judiciary then we could well be disappointed at said outcome.

    Case in point: I had a send-off in a recent game and I am told the player didn't even get the next match as a ban. I have no idea how he was able to convince the judiciary that he didn't lift a player to his shoulders and then slam him to the ground on his back, but there you go.

    imo any from of racism needs to be stamped out by example; whether it is from someone of the same race or no.

    The Judiciary process is clearly quite separate from RugbyWA... As it should be.

    RWA have no opportunity to send any message of any sort, and nor should they.

    I agree with you Front 3 that the Judiciary should be separate from RWA. But in a case like this, any respectful organisation would do something to eradicate any form of Racism which is totally unacceptable.

    That is absolutely ridiculous that he managed to get out without a lengthy ban.... I wonder how this judiciary will feel, whenever this guy will ruin someone's life and his family's by 'accidentally' breaking someone's spine with the move that he did....

    I think we need to be realistic about the judiciary's role here. Usually, in this situation, they are an impartial judge ruling on set laws with a variety of legal opinions of varying quality in their faces.

    They rule upon the letter of the law as they are able with legal argument coming from both sides.

    Rugby WA or the Referees association should have some representation there, but it will be separate from the actual judiciary members.

    Most of the time, the stupid decisions by a judiciary come as a result of either insufficient evidence for the right call to be made or some fancy pants lawyer arguing some technicality to get the bloke off.....generally both.

    I think it's rare that a judiciary shows genuine bias unless it is set up poorly.

    4 weeks down to 2 with an apology & remorse is the answer
