‘He’s a bit hard done by’: Was Hughes’ referee shove worse than Luai’s?

webnexttech | ‘He’s a bit hard done by’: Was Hughes’ referee shove worse than Luai’s?

The Storm were locked in talks on Sunday night about whether to fight Jahrome Hughes’s charge for shoving a referee at the judiciary. Already without five-eighth Cameron Munster (groin) for the opening weeks of the season, New Zealand international Hughes could join him on the sidelines after being charged for making contact with whistleblower Chris Butler in Melbourne’s miracle win over the Warriors. The NRL match review committee hit Hughes with a grade two contrary conduct charge on Sunday for barrelling into Butler as he desperately tried to position himself to stop Warriors centre Rocco Berry from scoring a second-half try. The charge carries a one-game suspension for an early guilty plea or two matches if he unsuccessfully fights it at the judiciary.
