Parramatta star lucky to only get 10 minutes on the sideline after latest round of NRL.
Parramatta’s Chris Sandow won’t miss any more game time than he did last weekend, after he was cleared by the NRL after asking referee Be Cummins “how much he was being paid” by the Melbourne Storm.
Most pundits suggested that Sandow should at least be fined after he questioned the referee’s integrity on the field.
However, his absence from the game for 10 minutes, as the Storm ran riot over the Eels, was deemed to be enough of a punishment.
In other judiciary news, Warriors back Ngani Laumape faces up to five weeks on the sideline after being hit with a grade three lifting charge for his tackle on Brisbane’s Josh McGuire.
Laumape can settle for a three week stint on the sidelines if he chooses to take the early guilty plea.
Laumape’s Warriors teammate Matagi Suaia was the only other player cited from the five games so far staged in round 15 — hit with a grade one dangerous contact charge for tackling Josh Hoffman in the air after the Broncos’ five-eighth kicked the ball.
Suaia can escape suspension with an early guilty plea.
