NRL shoulder charge gone for good: Bennett

Wayne Bennett says there’s no point talking about the shoulder charge because there is “zero” chance of it ever being permitted again in the NRL.

Debate surrounding the shoulder charge has hotted up this week after Roosters forward Kane Evans escaped sanction despite smashing Canterbury’s Sam Kasiano with a front-on hit last round.

Brisbane coach Bennett said on Thursday he was “disappointed” that Evans wasn’t charged but warned talk of bringing it back to the NRL is futile.

“The risk factor is too high. It’s never coming back, don’t even go down that path,” Bennett told reporters on Thursday.
