Bromwich bite allegation faces scrutiny

  • Bromwich bite allegation faces scrutiny

An alleged bite from Melbourne's Jesse Bromwich on St George Illawarra star Josh Dugan will be a priority case for the NRL match review committee on Monday as it investigates at least five incidents out of round 20.

Bromwich was put on report over the allegation from the NSW fullback in the 69th minute of the Storm's win in Napier on Saturday night.

Dugan immediately pointed to his arm as he freed himself from the Kiwi Test prop's tackle.

Wests Tigers prop Martin Taupau's swinging arm on James Maloney late in Sydney Roosters' 33-8 win on Friday night will also be scrutinised.

Commentators described Taupau's hit as a "cheap shot", while Roosters coach Trent Robinson thought it was "unnecessary".

A late shot from Brisbane's Adam Blair on Gold Coast playmaker Kane Elgey in the Broncos' big win on Friday night will also be looked at by match review coordinator Michael Buettner and his team.

A high shot from Josh Hoffman on Broncos centre Jordan Kahu could also be the subject of sanctions.
