The NRL has sent a warning letter to Raiders winger Jordan Rapana after he flipped the double bird at match officials.

It’s after he was denied a try in the Raiders golden point loss to the Cowboys.

It’s understood Rapana wasn’t charged because there was a fair bit of distance between him and the refs, making it too hard to determine if the gesture was actually meant for them.

While Rapana left Townsville a free man, two of his teammates weren’t so lucky.

Joey Leilua copped a grade one contrary conduct charge and Clay Priest was nabbed for dangerous contact.

The Rapana incident got us thinking, is it still appropriate to flip the bird? Have your say at our Facebook page!
