NRL Star Jadyn Su'A Charged With Ugly Hair Pull That Denied Rival A Try

St George second rower Jadyn Su’A has landed himself in hot water following a nasty hair pull on Luciano Leilua as the Cowboys player was racing away to score a try.

The Dragons player looked desperate as Leilua steamed through a gap in the 54th minute, throwing out an arm and grabbing a clump of hair to deny the Cowboys player a certain try.

North Queensland were awarded a penalty, however, Leilua looked almost certain to get the ball over the line before he was taken down in an unsportsmanlike manner.


Storm legend Bill Slater said: “I think if the hair’s not there he’s gone.”

Whilst Mat Thomspson hilariously quipped: “There’s a plus for going bald.”

Fans online surprisingly were hardly on the side of Leilua in the ordeal, instead taking the opportunity to throw shade at his haircut.

One fan tweeted: “Get a haircut and won’t be a problem.”


Another said: “How about these idiots with stupid haircuts get a trim?”

The referee seemed to show some sense, however, with the Su’A placed on report for the attempted ‘tackle’ with the moment coming at an intense time of the game with the Dragons down by just two points at the time of the tackle. 

However, the Cowboys managed to score just moments after the penalty and went on to steamroll their way to a hefty 34-8 win at Kogarah Oval. 


The loss wasn’t the last of Su’A’s sorrows, however, with the match review committee, today (August 1) charging him with grade one contrary conduct.

Su’A faces a $1,800 fine if he takes an early guilty plea, but if he fights the charge and loses he will instead be charged $2,500.


Considering the pretty damning evidence against the Samoan international, he’d perhaps be smart to take the early guilty plea.

Luckily for Su’A, he avoids a playing ban from the match committee.

In the same match, Jason Taumalolo was charged with a grade one shoulder charge on Blake Lawrie, also avoiding suspension, however, copping a $3,000 fine for the illegal shot.

If he chooses to challenge the charge and loses he will miss two weeks of the season.


Dragons' loss keeps them out of the top eight, meanwhile, the Cowboys have had a stellar season and find themselves in second position on the ladder.
