No need to protest (if it's on film and they want to, the jury can give a penalty without a team having to lodge a protest... if the offense is deemed warranted)... anyway, I think that the x-raid brass will sit on their cards... and wait and see. Past form indicates that RG will try to drive
himself back to the front, and detonate somewhere along the way (or do soft drinks implode/explode?).
Either way, RG tend to fight hardest when he's in the corner... but history suggest he - rarely - gets of the ropes in that situation.
It should be fun and spectacular (fast) to watch though.
