Stop chicken wing tackle: Bennett

05/04/2008 07:25:11 AM Comments (0)

Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett has called on the NRL to make a stand on the controversial chicken-wing tackle after Melbourne prop Adam Blair was placed on report for wrenching the arm of Michael Ennis.

The incident soured an otherwise impressive 28-8 win for the Storm, who snapped a two-game losing streak and ended Brisbane's perfect start to the season.

Blair was reported by referee Jared Maxwell in the 54th minute after pinning and twisting the left arm of Ennis, who was in considerable pain.

Storm coach Craig Bellamy admitted the incident did not look good, but he again insisted that his players were not taught to target opponents' arms.
