NSW attacked the Queensland line, but sent its first kick of the night too deep to Munster, which conveniently marked him in the gate.
But the blues striker Tyson Frizell flew by and seemed to pull Munster down before landing.
The star of the first game was immediately removed from the field and played no further role. The Maroons were left without one of their major players.
Brisbane’s Courier Mail led the indignation and brought charges against Frizell.
In a story titled “Illegal Game Thrown Munster Out of the Game” Travis Meyn urged the NRL to demonstrate its commitment to fighting head injuries by indicting Frizell.
“Munster was in the air in Queensland’s in-goal when he defused a bomb only to be taken out by Blues striker Tyson Frizell,” wrote Travis Meyn.
“With his feet in the air, Münster was defenseless when he was caught by Frizell and his head hit the ground.”
Meyn called on the NRL to “charge Frizell with dangerous contact”.
“Frizell made no attempt to play the ball but instead rallied Munster and suffered a head injury severe enough to miss 78 minutes of the game,” he wrote.
But he wasn’t the only one who was surprised that Frizell’s involvement was generally ignored by the referee and commentators.
“I’m pretty stunned that this wasn’t even mentioned in the comment,” tweeted sports writer Phil Lutton of the Sydney Morning Herald.
“Nothing bad than a player in the air who is thrown to the ground and hits his head in the grass. Costly for the maroons. ”
Physio Brien Seeney also said he thought the game was a “clear penalty”.
But Maroon’s trainer Wayne Bennett wasn’t ready to blame Frizell.
“I haven’t seen it well enough. It probably looked to me like he hit his own head on the floor, ”Bennett said.
“I didn’t see the vision well enough to really take a definitive position.”
Munster must now successfully complete the concussion logs to return to the third game.
Queensland Team Doctor Dr. Matt Hislop, announced that Munster had passed his head injury test but was not allowed to return to the game due to the severity of his initial reaction on the field.
“I just wanted to correct the report that Münster did not pass its HIA assessment in the hospital room. It passed (compared to baseline) but it doesn’t matter. He was Cat 1 based on poor balance as demonstrated in the replay, which means he couldn’t return tonight regardless of his HIA, ”wrote Hislop on Twitter.
