MANLY halfback Jason Ferris will receive a two-week suspension if found guilty of a grade one dangerous throw charge when he fronts a National Rugby League judiciary hearing tonight.
ROUND 13 kicked off with a depleted Roosters side going down to Braith Anasta's Bulldogs. It was a tremendous win for Canterbury but afterwards, it was Easts' coach Ricky Stuart who stole the lime-light with some hoo-har about being robbed. I've always been a big fan of coaches whinging after matches. I know some people think we follow the game to watch the players but don't be fooled. After referees, coaches run a close second as the most watched people in the game. Mind you, Ricky needs to sharpen up his act a little... I watched the entire press conference and not once did he use an expletive - hardly entertaining.
