Nathan Cleary sent for spear tackle on Dylan Brown in Battle of the West

Panthers superstar Nathan Cearly has been sent from the field in the first 20 minutes of their Battle of the West derby with Parramatta.

The halfback was ordered off for a spear tackle on Dylan Brown in the 18th minute with the score standing at 12-4.

The tackle looked bad immediately, and referee Todd Smith did not flinch.

“Hands in between the legs, drove him into the ground, you’re off” was the explanation for one of the most sensational send offs in years.

Parra scored on the very next set, too, with Reed Mahoney extending their lead yet further.
