The decision to clear Billy Slater of shoulder charge at the judiciary has had widespread support from the NRL community including Parramatta star Jarryd Hayne but fans have branded the Melbourne Storm fullback a ‘protected species.’

Considered one of the biggest judiciary cases in the NRL era, the three-man panel of Sean garlick, Bob Lindner and Mal Cochrane kept Slater waiting for 54 minutes before finding him not guilty on Tuesday night.

Hayne, who played with Slater for Australia but competed against him many times at club level and for NSW against Queensland in State of Origin, led the charge of NRL figures who praised the decision over what he believes is a 'stupid rule' in a series of tweets.
