Crocker accuses Kennedy of taking a

Queensland forward Michael Crocker has taken a swipe at New South Wales back-rower Ben Kennedy for taking a dive in the Blues' 32-10 series-clinching Origin win in Brisbane last night.

Crocker was placed on report for hitting Kennedy across the face in the 29th minute, with Kennedy left lying face down on the ground for several seconds after the incident.

Kennedy has denied taking a dive, and is upset over comments from Crocker, who says it was only a slap and he expected the Blues forward to quickly regain his feet.
