Canberra’s Hudson Young has been handed an eight-match ban for his eye-gouge on Warrior Adam Pompey.
It’s the second time Young has been banned for an eye-gouge this season, after an incident earlier this year on Aiden Tolman saw him miss five games.
The suspension is one of the longest in the NRL in recent years.
“He’s obviously not ready for our game… It’s LUDICROUS!”
Freddy, Locky, Joey slam Hudson Young for eye-poking.
