The NRL has decided not to suspend Broncos hooker Andrew McCullough or Warriors front-rower Chris Satae for their physical exchange during Sunday’s game at Suncorp Stadium.
McCullough will escape with a $1150 fine and be free to take on the Panthers this week, while the last player to be sin binned, Storm centre Curtis Scott, copped a two-match ban.
The decision not to suspend Satae is a surprising one, given Rabbitohs lock Sam Burgess received a two-match ban for a similar incident earlier this year that caught Bulldogs centre Josh Morris in the throat.
Burgess fought the decision at the NRL tribunal, but had a game added to his suspension.
Additionally, Broncos forward Josh McGuire escaped with a fine for conduct on referee Grant Atkins.
