Commentators blow up over 'disgraceful' eye poke


//

Canberra's Hudson Young came under under fire from NRL commentators for appearing to deliberately poke the eye of Warrior Adam Pompey after a try was scored against the Raiders.

The Raiders face a tough finals match-up against the minor premiers Melbourne Storm after a shock 24-20 loss to the Warriors in Canberra on Saturday afternoon.

Young was making a late tackle on Pompey in the first half when he was seen coming over the top and having two attempts at the face of the Warriors player.

"He's done it before. That is absolute garbage. That is not what our game is about," NRL commentator Brett Finch raged on Fox Sports.

"Look at the pressure on his eyes... that is terrible. You can't touch the eyes of an opposing player.

"He's a repeat offender. That is a disgrace. That is just crap. It's really poor.

"He could go for anywhere between 12-20 weeks. He went for two cracks at it.

"That's really poor. We don't need that in our game. That's disgraceful in my opinion."

Pompey puts Warriors on top

Rugby league legend Greg Alexander also ripped in to Young's behaviour on the footy field, baffled by his decision making in that moment, having already been suspended for the same action earlier this season.

"Why would he even think about doing that? That's a complete lack of self control. After seeing five weeks on the sideline [earlier this season] to have a go again?" Alexander said on Fox.

"He'll be in trouble. He won't be playing semi-final footy. I don't think it matters how far the Raiders go, I don't think he'll be there."
