The Canberra Raiders beat the Melbourne Storm, and some dodgy tactics, to firm as an NRL premiership favourite.
But was Cam Smith's ear pull on Bailey Simonsson fair game, or something that needs to be stamped out of the game?
The Raiders have tried to avoid being dragged into bagging Smith, but there's no doubt it has created some ill feeling and the Green Machine want NRL officials to take a stand.
The Raiders will play against Manly on Sunday, with the club hoping to attract 20,000 fans to a regular season game for the first time in almost a decade.
If they don't, Canberra Times sports reporter Caden Helmers will have to "eat his hat" after making a bet about how many Raiders fans will turn up.
