North Queensland and Parramatta have both suffered blows to their NRL finals campaigns after an unsuccessful night at the judiciary last night. Cowboys prop Carl Webb and Eels backrower Fui Fui Moi Moi were both rubbed out for the entire finals series as well as the early rounds of the 2006 season.
Webb was suspended for six matches after his appeal for a downgrade was rejected. Webb was hit with a grade four striking charge for his punch to the head of Melbourne back-rower Ryan Hoffman last Saturday night.
Moi Moi was outed for nine matches after he failed to beat a grade two reckless high tackle charge for his hit on Brisbane rookie Berrick Barnes last Friday night. Moi Moi was suspended despite video evidence proving inconclusive as to whether his arm made contact with Barnes' head.
