‘Trial By Media’: Gordy’s Radical Idea For The NRL Judiciary

On the back of Reece Walsh’s three-game suspension at the NRL judiciary late Tuesday night, league legend Gordon Tallis is not happy with how the panel may have been influenced by external noise.

Tallis, who doesn’t agree with the judiciary’s verdict, has thrown up a scenario which he says would limit outside influences on the judiciary.

Judiciary chairman Justice Geoffrey Bellew, Tony Puletua and Sean Hampstead were part of a panel that found Walsh guilty of swearing at referee Chris Butler in the Broncos’ loss to the Titans on Sunday.

The hearing lasted more than four hours, with Broncos teammate Pat Carrigan and Titans forward David Fifita providing testimonies.

Ultimately, Walsh was found guilty of breaching the NRL’s code of conduct and will miss two club games and Origin III in Sydney.

“I am disappointed with the outcome but I accept the decision of the panel,” Walsh said.
