A penalty was awarded on the field and the replay was made for a grim viewing Kelly faces rehab for a possible mid to high grade syndesmosis injury

Dragons coach Daniel Lacey said he didn’t think pulling his hair was a reportable offense, but was less than impressed with Hall’s actions He said it could happen on the pitch by accident, but players should just let go, not use an opponent’s hair to drag them into a tackle

« When you pull someone’s hair, you let go I lost my best player She’s broken, she’s in a moon boot Let go, says Lacey

« They shouldn’t be pulled by the hair You’re here to play soccer You hurt yourself in a tackle, you hurt yourself in a tackle You don’t want to hurt yourself by pulling your hair »
