    The first half of the 2012 NRL Grand Final saw James Graham and Billy Slater engaged in a Tyson vs Holyfield battle, with Slater alleging Graham bit his ear during a melee that took place following a Canterbury try.

    English forward James “Tyson” Graham and Slater appeared to be in a close headlock, and video footage shown on Channel Nine’s coverage shows Graham seemingly attack the ear of “Holyfield” Slater.

    Slater reported the incident to the referee, with Tony Archer noting the blood on Slater’s ear and placing the allegation on report.

    Archer said of the incident: “It’s on report, that’s all I can do.”

    Slater later bit back, scoring for the Melbourne Storm before half-time.

    There will no doubt be more to come from this.
