    Can't really agree here. If Merrin gets suspended for 4 rep games does that mean he's rubbed out of Origin until 2017? Do Australia games count even though he probably wouldn't get picked without injuries to first choice Australian players? Hell, there's no guarantee he'd be picked for NSW next year.

    Whether it's a rep game or a club game the player is representing and has a responsibility to the club who pays his wages. If he gets himself suspended then he's the one who is punishing the club, not the system.

    Yeah, this article is stupid. This makes no sense.

    I'll also argue the other way, how Kiwi players have been rubbed out of tests because of a foul in a club game? As for compensation why doesn't Jim the Mossie give the Cowboys his his very large match payments to the club, afterall he didn't become a stroker for the money but because he wanted to play at the "Highest Level". Shame he's not up to playing there.
