‘Not Fair!’: Gorden Tallis Blasts Controversial Hair-Pull Penalty

Triple M’s and Broncos legend Gorden Tallis has blasted the controversial decision to penalise Tyson Frizell for a hair-pull, declaring the referee should’ve let the game continue.


Controversy struck Penrith’s thrilling 16-15 win over the Knights on Saturday night when referee Peter Gough pulled up Frizell for a hair-pull penalty on Penrith’s Jarome Luai.

The penalty occurred at the 56th-minute mark with the Knights holding a 14-8 lead, before the penalty resulted in a try to Jaeman Salmon moments later.

“If his hair goes past his collar, which is his uniform, and you go to grab his jersey, that is play-on,” Tallis said on Triple M’s Sunday Sin Bin.
