NRL CEO Todd Greenberg has announced he will personally oversee an immediate investigation into stopping vicious hits like Aidan Sezer’s sickening head-butt of Sam Burgess’s arm.
“It’s critical we protect our media favourites like Burgess. Sezer’s wanton disregard for Sam’s swinging arm is something we have to stamp out of this game” said Greenberg.
The incident marred the Rabbitoh’s victory over the Raiders on Saturday.
Greenberg also announced an investigation into just who the Canberra Raiders are.
“I asked Rabs and Phil Gould and neither of them had ever heard of them. I’m going to check with Peter Beattie to see if he knows them.”
NRL Chairman Peter Beattie also confirmed he had not heard of the Canberra Raiders.
Danny Wielder reached out to Raiders coach Ricky Stuart for comment and has been named as backup hooker for next week’s game against the Cowboys.
