West Leopard starter Justin Matamua was arrested in less than five minutes on Saturday night’s NRL debut.
Matamua scored more than four minutes on the field and scored Els’ half-time defender Michael Moses on the shoulder in the first half.
Moses knocked it out and tried to reach Reagan Campbell-Gillard – and he was too late to get it out and wrap his arms around it.

“But is it hard to sin? I think we see a lot of situations like this, no, and it doesn’t lead to the accumulation of sin.”
