Canberra players say they're baffled by the NRL judiciary's decision to ban Hudson Young despite the alleged victim defending the Raiders forward. The flawed judiciary system was exposed again on Tuesday night when Young was slapped with an eight-game suspension for making contact with Adam Pompey's face last weekend. Pompey gave evidence to say he did not feel Young make contact with his eyes. The incident has divided current and former players, with some calling for Young to be banned for 12 months and others defending the 21-year-old. Raiders players are rallying around Young, who was suspended for five weeks earlier this year after being found guilty of an eye gouge.
