North Queensland forward Josh McGuire could find himself in trouble with the NRL after an apparent eye gouge on Melbourne Storm star Cameron Munster.
Midway through the first half, Munster was tackled near the Cowboys’ line, and got up to play the ball before McGuire’s hand appeared to make a move towards the five-eighth’s eye.

Soon after, the Storm forced a goal line dropout, with Munster speaking to referee Grant Atkins about the incident.
Munster then decided to drop the report, before speaking to Channel 9 about the incident after the game.
“I won’t go there,” he told Channel 9.
“Me and Moose have a connection there.
“He did get me but I wasn’t going to put it on report.”
Fox League expert Luke Lewis addressed the incident during the telecast, and believes McGuire will likely spend some time on the sidelines following the incident.
“At first I didn’t think too much of it, he might’ve just got up and got a poke in the eye,” Lewis said.
“Having a second look at it, he’s definitely got his finger in the eye there and I think we’re going to hear a little bit more of this during the week. It doesn’t look too good.”
