Cronulla Shark Paul Gallen believes Konrad Hurrell should have been banned for his raised knee on Jake Trbojevic during the Auckland Nines.

“There’s no doubt about it, [Jake] had his head on the wrong side but Konrad Hurrell has to get out of lifting his knees in tackles like that,” Gallen told Triple M radio in Sydney.

“Being his second charge in a matter of a 12-month period, [Hurrell’s] gonna spend probably three-to-four weeks on the sideline.

“I don’t think [Hurrell] does it intentionally… but it is something he has a habit of doing and he’s just going to have to get out of it.”
