- Labor would abolish ATSIC: Latham - National - www.smh.com.au / Latham to scrap 'incapable' ATSIC. 30/03/2004. ABC News Online:

The ref should have stopped the game, but no, he immediately played on. If Parker had not run on, the Broncos would have been one player down - to put it another way, the offending team would have gained an advantage by smashing an opposition player in the face. We're talking about Shane Webcke here - I wouldn't have thought anything short of being tackled by an elephant could put him down. There is absolutely no doubt the Wecke was not part of the match, he was something like 40-50m behind the action being helped off field by the trainers. Logic dictates this is not worth stripping the club of its competition points. They won fair and square - they gained no advantage by having the extra man on the field - he was semi-conscious at the time!
