The prop who played 151 NRL games was put on report for an incident which occurred in the Tigers’ 28-26 win over Cowra on Sunday.

His brother Matt will also head to the judiciary after being placed on report for a separate infringement at the Cowra Rugby Grounds.

Oberon coach Zac Rowlandsonfeels penalisingthe Tigers during the match wassufficient punishment for both incidents. Still, he faces a nervous wait.

“Matt and George are both on report again, I don’t think the incidents were really anything major,” he said.

“Matt landed on a Cowra player while making a tackle and his elbow hit the head of the player. It was a bit of a scuff, but he didn’t mean it.

“George got put on report for pushing someone in the chest, that probably shouldn’t have even been a penalty.”

George Rose has already spent time on the sidelines this year due to suspension, copping two weeks for a reckless high tackle.

Rowlandson hopes the latest incident will not see him miss more game time for the Tigers, the coach adding he felt Sunday’s match saw too many penalties as a whole.

“It wasn’t just what happened to Matt and George, there were so many penalties,” he said.

“If it wasn’t 40 penalties it would have been close to it, and it wasn’t just us getting penalised, it was them [Cowra] too. It’s not good for the game, it’s not good to see penalty stoppage after penalty stoppage and the amount of time the touch judges came onto the field.”

Still, Rowlandson did have something to be happy about as his side“got out of jail” against Cowra.

Oberon began the match well as they opened scoring via a try to fullback Blake Miller, but Cowra then pilled on 16 unanswered points.

Even after the Tigers fought back to level at 16-all when George Rose barged over, Cowra did not lie down.

In the end both teams crossed for five tries, but Trent Rose booted four conversions for the Tigers while Caley Mok was only able to kick three for the Magpies.

“Cowra played good. We started well, but we got flustered by a few calls and we went off our game,” Rowlandson said.

“They probably should have beat us … we just got lucky in the end.”
