Greater Western Sydney Giant’s enforcer Toby Greene is slammed by fans as he appears to eye gouge a Richmond player in the opening quarter of the AFL grand final.
In footage of the incident, Greene can be seen holding Tigers player Liam Baker on the ground with one arm while grabbing at his face with his other hand.
‘Dirty as they come. No surprises,’ one fan wrote online.
The first quarter incident ignited debate among AFL fans as to whether there was any intent
‘Nothing here!’ argued another fan.
‘Thug. Hope he gets a couple of weeks for it,’ added a third.
The AFL grand final between the Richmond Tigers and GWS Giants kicked off at 2.30pm on Saturday in front of a sell-out crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Greene appears to have not leant his lesson after being put on the sidelines for a week by the tribunal after the Giant’s semi-final win against the Brisbane Lions.
The tribunal ruled Green had made unreasonable contact with the eye region of Lions midfielder Lachie Neale.
Some called for a penalty on Greene for the alleged eye gouge
Others made note of Greene’s previous penalty for eye gouging saying it was ‘instinctive’
