26 NT NEWS. Friday, August 30, 2013. www.ntnews.com.au P U B : N T N E W S D A T E : 3 0 -A U G -2 0 1 3 P A G E : 2 6 C O L O R : C M Y K Broncos must put shoulders to wheel BRONCOSVKNIGHTS Anthony Griffin RIVALS Newcastle might disagree but Brisbane coach Anthony Griffin believes the shoulder charge ban is working in the wake of Knights forward Kade Snowdens sevenmatch suspension. Ahead of tonights mustwin clash with the Knights at Suncorp Stadium, Griffin said that while shoulder charges had been a rarity this year since the rule was enforced, players would get the message following Snowdens lengthy ban. Newcastle were fuming after Snowden reluctantly accepted a seven-match ban rather than risk a nine-week suspension for a hit that broke North Queensland hooker Ray Thompsons jaw in two places. Knights boss Matt Gidley complained that the severity of Thompsons injury from the innocuous tackle ensured Snowden was hit with a grade-four charge. Coincidentally, Snowden has been replaced by ex-Test prop Willie Mason, who will play his first match since hav ing his cheekbone broken by a Sonny Bill Williams shoulder charge. Griffin was not breathing any easier after Snowdens suspension. Brisbane are only one point outside the top eight but sit 13th on a congested NRL ladder, ensuring they must win their final two games to remain in the finals hunt. The last time they clashed, the teams drew 18-18 a month ago in Newcastle. But Griffin was more interested in watching replays of their last-round 28-12 loss at Penrith when reserve hooker James Segeyaro exploited their lack of marker defence. I thought we did very well to get out of it with a point, Griffin said. I thought we showed a ton of character.
