James Fisher-Harris sin bin, Nick Cotric high tackle, Dylan Edwards injury, Penrith Panthers, Canberra Raiders, news, Grant Atkins

Panthers prop James Fisher-Harris was sent to the sin bin for a nasty high kick on Raiders forward Ryan Sutton – leaving the field 10 seconds after it came on.

Then, just 10 minutes later, Nick Kotrick was given the marching orders.

Sutton replaced prop Josh Papalii in the 31st minute and flicked a free-kick into the face of Fisher-Harris’s forearm.

Referee Grant Atkins blew an instant penalty when Sutton’s face hit the ground – and in Bunker’s review, the Panthers enforcer was deemed to have made hard contact with the head.

Fisher-Harris looked shocked as Atkins raised ten fingers and sent him to the sidelines for 10 minutes.

“Big deal here from Fisher-Harris on Ryan Sutton,” Fox League’s Andrew Voss said.

“He was carrying from the start, he’s a sin bin, on the report Fisher-Harris was sent to the sin bin, the captain was coming back.”

“Everything happens here at GIO,” said Michael Ennis of the Fox League.

“He saw the bunker and there’s power and so you can go to the bin for 10, Penrith down to 12,” Voss said.

Both commentators were impressed that Sutton was taken for a head review after his first carry.

“One run and Sutton is about to come off the field, as Harawira-Naira Fisher-Harris comes out to the dugout,” says Ennis.

“Sutton, ten seconds on the field … it’s happening there a little bit,” Voss said.

Both teams went into the break with the Panthers leading 14-6 but they were down and Ricky Stewart was hoping his side could make a comeback.

But from the opening kickoff, Panthers gun Dylan Edwards saved a nasty shot from Canberra winger Nick Kotrick to score a rebound.

“Edwards, Coattanger, top tackle, Coatrick, they’re running from everywhere, I daresay we could be 12 on 12.”

“It’s evaluated, there’s a carefree nature about it, there’s a certain power,” Atkins said.

Minutes later, Fisher-Harris returned from a 10-minute layoff and the Panthers scored through Dylan Edwards, who broke down the left side of the field.
