Heartbreak 💔💔 A shattered Jason Taumalolo paints a despondent picture after the Cowboys Prelim loss. 😔😔 #NRLCowboysEeks #NRL.
@NRL Well you got what you wanted, try off a forward pass, Hiku was dropped on his head and Paulo wasn’t binned but Taumalolo was for the weakest shoulder charge I’ve ever seen.
I expect Jason Taumalolo will serve any possible ban for that high shot in round 1 next season irrespective of the result #NRLCowboysEels. Either NQ lose or they win and he serves it next season anyway… wouldn’t want to punish the fans by banning him for a Grand Final. #NRL.
If there’s any integrity left in the place there’s just no way Taumalolo plays next week, it’s a shoulder to the head of a player, and it’s late. #nrl #NRLCowboysEels.
If the Cowboys win Taumalolo gets a fine. If they lose he gets 4 weeks. Welcome to the @NRL judiciary #NRLCowboysEels.
In conditions like that bench rotations are so important, and Parra ended up nailing it. Got the big first stint out of Paulo, then RCG came back to help turn the tide before Paulo came back on. In hindsight, Cows probably had to spell Taumalolo and get Cotter back on bit earlier.
Interesting re: Taumalolo. Grade 1 = fine, Grade 2 = ban. NRL made changes to judiciary in May for finals. If not for those changes, a Grade 1 would’ve been a ban given it’s his third charge of 2022. However if that tackle occurred in Origin, he could get a fine for Grade 2..
Taumalolo has two charges this season already, so any charge he gets is 3rd+ offence. G1 Shoulder Charge would be a 3-4 match ban G1 Careless High Tackle would be $3k-2 matches G2 of either = suspended #NRLCowboysEels #NRLFinals.
@LeagueUnlimited They’ll probably do something like “Taumalolo is suspended from playing on Wednesdays”.
Also, if Taumalolo got a grade-two should charge, it would be a real hit for Tonga’s World Cup hopes. Looking at four matches with an early plea, or five if he fights it and loses it. Either way, we’re talking group stage plus potentially a quarter-final. #NRLCowboysEels.
Parramatta first try: off a half-metre forward pass. Parramatta second try: Taumalolo in the bin because of something that happened three plays ago. Just saying. #NRLFinals #NRLCowboysEels.
Feel for Taumalolo, put his all in his team and the game tnight Ofa atu @nthqldcowboys #NRLCowboysEels.
@TripleM_NRL After Taumalolo shoulder charged a bloke in the head and stayed with his victim. Wally said it was one of the greatest display of sportsmanship you would ever see. FMD 🤦♂️.
Im assuming Taumalolo will just have his suspension postponed till next year? Gotta do it for the fans #NRLCowboysEels.
Re Taumalolo, if Panthers win tomorrow I predict he gets a Grade 2 and misses the GF. If Souths win tomorrow it will be a Grade 1 and he’ll cop a fine. Personally I dont think anyone should miss a GF for that..
I look forward to Taumalolo getting a suspended sentence to next year just so the fans don’t miss out on seeing him in a grand final.
Cant see Taumalolo playing in the GF if they go on to win this. Looked pretty forceful to me..
One of the most entertaining games I’ve ever watched, Cowboys unlucky to be on the losing side, Taumalolo what a player, wow #NRLCowboysEels.
Mitch Moses tackle on a full flight Taumalolo could just about put Parramatta into the GF. #bodyontheline.
@Nelsonhdale Unluggy Taumalolo. However, that “for the fans” rule only applies to the Penrith Panthers. Up the Cowboys 🤠🔥.
Taumalolo possible charges (3rd offence, early plea) #NRLCowboysEels Careless high tackle Grade 1: $3000 Grade 2: 3 games Grade 3: 4 games Dangerous contact Grade 1: $3000 Grade 2: 3 games Grade 3: 4 games Shoulder charge Grade 1: 3 games Grade 2: 4 games Grade 3: 5 games.
The Taumalolo sin bin is a joke why go back all the way to that situation when they played on from it #NRLCowboysEels #NRLFinals.
If the Cowboys pull this off and they suspend Taumalolo after letting Taylan May play, the NRL officially have no clue. #NRLCowboysEels.
If the Cowboys get through here they’re gonna need Mike Rush to get Jason Taumalolo playing in the Grand Final #NRLcowboyseels.
LIVE NRL: Cowboys take lead over sloppy Eels in thriller as Taumalolo faces GF ban.
@Jordan_Patu More McLean than Taumalolo, Taumalolo tried to tackle, McLean straight up pulled out of it.
and spend abit of time with them. What rubbed salt in the wounds was that I saw Jason Taumalolo out in town and asked for a quick photo to then get absolutely rejected (props to him for being quite nice about it though) and of course I respected his decision and just ...(3/5).
Taumalolo reminding everyone especially Papali’i, who the real top dog is. #NRLFinals #ridemcowboys.
if they gave cleary a pass to play in last years grand final despite his charge being what caused isaac luke to miss a grand final then taumalolo should be fine. think of the fans! #NRLCowboysEels.
@issacluke_14 As someone who was suspended for a GF, waddayareckon Bully? Does Taumalolo play if they win? #NRLCowboysEels.
