They show the same clip of Smith talking to the Ref over and over but cut it before we can see what Smith is actually talking to the Ref about - Smith is telling the Ref that by awarding the penalty he is rewarding ducking the head, he goes on to say something like "so are you going to pay a penalty for every player that puts himself at risk?" which is a reasonable comment as the last thing we want is players playing for the penalty and putting themselves at risk.

The AFL has had a similar issue with players ducking their head into tackles that now has lead to the point that if a player ducks their head and then receives head-high contact then there is no free kick awarded and play on is called.

There was a big carry on about Inglis doing that. A few times he got a penalty when it looked like he ducked his head down
End of the day we'll never know what the outcome would have been if he didn't duck his head. I personally doubt that he was trying to get a penalty but moreso trying to protect himself in the belief he was going to be flipped... once again we'll never know what was going through McKinnon's head at that moment.

It was a lifting tackle and a penalty either way... didn't bother watching the show, but they did suck in an audience.
Don't forget not long before, Alex was celebrating and high fiving to his Newcastle team-mates after he knocked out .....Jordan McClean

That's a head clash but didn't McKinnon have a reputation for being a bit grubby anyway?

Yeh but my point is that Alex has been in the exact same situation but on the opposite side. McClean laid motionless on the ground and Alex showed no concern but was high fiving his team mates and celebrating.

On another note, how did Josh Jackson not get suspended for this tackle

Its worst than Alex's and NRL vowed to punish illegal lifting tackles but yet this guy walks free? Another Origin conspiracy

Agreed, it's just a head clash, it's only the fist pumping and "chicken walk" while standing over the player on the ground that's the issue in this context.

Note Smith is arguing with the Ref, it's just something he does Smile
chicken walk aye? wtf is that lol

is that in RLL3?
