The Cronulla Sharks have come out to berate the decision of the NRL Match Review Committee to down grade one of the Burgess brothers high tackle charges.

Sharks fullback Matt Moylan was caught high by Sam Burgess and was is now unable to play this weekend after failing concussion protocol.

The England international was initially handed a grade two high tackle charge, but was successful in having it reduced to grade one and will now be available to face Melbourne.

However, the Sharks have questioned the decision, believing they are in the fact the side that have lost out from the incident.

“We’re not happy that we have one of our big, marquee players off the field because of that incident,” Cronulla group chief executive Richard Munro said.

The process found he is not guilty and he has paid a small fine. We’re the club that has been penalised because our main player is off the park.

“It doesn’t seem right, does it?”
