Broncos star sent to judiciary for ‘horrendous’ tackle


Brisbane lock Patrick Carrigan has been referred straight to the judiciary for a hip drop tackle on Tigers playmaker Jackson Hastings.

Carrigan was the third man in the tackle and dropped his weight on the back of Hastings’ legs, causing the ball-carrier to limp off the field.

“I thought the tackle was a pretty ordinary tackle,” coach Brett Kimmorley said after the Tigers’ 32-18 win.

“It is something that has crept into the game a little bit and it needs to be looked after, because it’s a horrendous tackle and the outcome can be really bad.”

Carrigan will front the judiciary on Tuesday night.

Tom Burgess is facing 1-2 games suspension for a high tackle on Ronaldo Mulitalo, while Raiders firebrand Joseph Tapine can accept a $1000 for punching David Fifita.
