SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - APRIL 04: Cooper Cronk of the Roosters stays down after being hit late by Tevita Pangai Junior of the Broncos during the round four NRL match between the Sydney Roosters and the Brisbane Broncos at Sydney Cricket Ground on April 04, 2019 in Sydney, Australia.

Brisbane enforcer Tevita Pangai Junior is set to miss at least a fortnight of action after a late shot on Cooper Cronk in Thursday night’s loss to the Sydney Roosters.

Pangai Junior was charged with a Grade 2 Dangerous Contact charge for his 17th minute hit on Cronk, which left him floored.

If Pangai Junior enters a guilty plea he’ll miss two matches, although he could miss three if he fights the charge and loses.


  1. Sick of hearing about this guy lately. Every other article is about this guy PANGAI. He hasn’t even been around long enough to have achieved anything yet. Hope he gets banned just so I can have a week or two without hearing about him.

  2. When will the Judiciary grow a pair and start making statements when handing down charges????
    Two weeks max for a dog shot that could’ve done some serious damage. That’s a joke.

    Can we please not play anymore games at the SCG, watching It on tv is terrible and does no justice to our great game.
    Also how bad is the CH 9 Commentary, Fox sports for me for every match now.

  3. As usual the pathetic NRL management lead by useless greenburger and the Beetroot only ever do anything AFTER everyone screams the house down on an issue. Keep screaming about the dog shots and things may change by 2022.

  4. NEWS FLASH: U heard it here first… johnny sutton and inglis to retire next year and tevita pangai junior to sign with souths…

  5. Andrew Johns knows very little about footy, Almost everything he says doesn’t happen. Have a listen to his commentary next game and see how many wrong dumb sayings he gets incorrect. The bloke could play footy but his commentary and predications are way of the mark.🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱🎱

  6. NEWS FLASH: U heard it here first… johnny sutton and inglis should retire NOW. Both useless.πŸ’ͺπŸ”πŸ‘
