Blood spilt on the floor?

There was some action over at Ericsson Stadium yesterday.

A day after Warriors hooker Nathan Fien was allowed to carry on for the most part of the game despite a head gash which was bleeding profusely, Rugby League Players' Association president Tony Butterfield has come out in support of the Player's welfare.

"Butts" has suggested that players should stop the game themselves if the referee fails his duty of care in sending a bleeding opponent to the blood bin. This lead referees boss Robert Finch to issue a timely reminder to all referee's about their responsibilities in regard to bleeding players.

Meanwhile, the NRL has decided to go easy on Sea Eagles chief executive Paul Cummings, who was ejected from the sideline for abusing a ground manager over the incident. He will not be punished for his actions.
