An absolutely disgraceful decision from the bunker tbh - Connor Tracey out before he hit the ground and they've put it on report and used the bin early. Sorry but that was awful

12min

Connor Tracey is still down and will go off on the stretcher and not in a good way; Tariq Sims looks resigned to the fact he's going to be sent

12min

Tariq Sims is going to spend time off the field but the question is does it 10 fingers from Ashley Klein or the 1 pointed finger? Major concern for Connor Tracey

12min

Dragons last tackle kick was pretty poor considering the metres
