Sharks draw the line on foul play

In a move that goes even further than what I called for a week ago, the Sharks have passed a board resolution taking a firm “no tolerance” stance on acts of dirty pay on the field.

Speaking to The Mercury’s Mike Greenaway, Board Chair Stephen Saad revealed “we have decided that going forward there must be a policy of ‘no play, no pay’ should a player be suspended for foul play”. In other words, players handed bans due to on-field indiscretions would find their pay docked for the equivalent period of their suspension.

While this policy cannot, obviously, be applied retrospectively, the Sharks will ensure that the necessary clause to enable its enforcement will become a standard part of any new player contracts offered by the union.

Bloody good show, say I. I’m proud of the Sharks for standing up and taking action to improve our own standards, rather than whining about unfair treatment.
