“The laws of the game allow for play to continue while players are out of play and treated for minor injuries, but it has always been the case that when referees become aware of a possible serious injury, the game should stop,” NRL football-operations chief Graham Annesley said.
“Last night there was ample opportunity for that to happen, but it didn’t.
“We will review the video and audio of the incident and consider all the relevant circumstances to hopefully prevent it from happening again.”
I don't really understand how they have come out with this decision. Either it's a gouge and it's a more serious charge (high grade contrary conduct or dangerous conduct) or it's not a gouge and he gets no punishment.So by charging him they’re admitting he purposely gouged someone’s eye?
