Tony Archer has conceded that Sia Soliola should have been sent off for his high tackle on Billy Slater, which left him unconscious.

“Based on a review of the tackle, the incident did meet the indicators of a send off and the player should have been sent from the field,” Archer said.

“The match officials always have the option of a send off and I expect them to use it in instances of serious foul play.”
