NRL 2021: Victor Radley sin-binned twice, placed on report four times in Roosters' shock loss to Brisbane Broncos

Sydney Roosters lock Victor Radley was sin-binned twice and placed on report four times as his side suffered a shock 34-16 loss to Brisbane Broncos at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

In the first half, Radley was sent from the field after a high shot on Brisbane's Albert Kelly and was placed on report - for the first time of the night - in the process.

Then, just two minutes into the second half, Radley was sin-binned again, this time for a high shot on Tevita Pangai Jr.

To cap off a poor evening for the 23-year-old, Radley was placed on report a further two times, for tackles on Broncos halfback Tyson Gamble, and winger Xavier Coates. The four different incidents will all but certainly rule Radley out of the upcoming State of Origin series - if anything due to a lack of discipline rather than any punishment handed out by the NRL.

Radley wasn't the only Rooster who'll be feeling the heat from the NRL's judiciary though, with Kiwi trio Joseph Manu, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, and Isaac Liu also on report as officials look to crack down on any dangerous play.

For the Broncos, prop Matt Lodge was also sent to the sin-bin, ironically for a high tackle on Radley, while Gamble was placed on report for a crusher tackle.

On the field, a hat-trick to David Mead, and further tries from Dale Copley, John Asiata, and Keenan Palasia were enough for the Broncos to stun the Roosters.

The Roosters were able to score through Angus Crichton, Daniel Tupou, and Sitili Tupouniua in a dominant nine minutes that saw them take a 16-14 lead at the break.

But ill-discipline and determined performance from the Broncos proved too much for the former premiers to endure, humbled on their own turf by a side 10 places below them on the NRL ladder.

Brisbane's result was made all the more impressive coming off the back of a 50-6 loss to Manly Sea Eagles last week, and gave coach Kevin Walters his third victory of the season.

But the win can't move the Broncos out of 15th place on the NRL's competition ladder, behind West Tigers on points differential.

Meanwhile, the Roosters remain fifth on the ladder, missing the chance to make up ground on South Sydney Rabbitohs - who play Penrith Panthers later on Sunday.
