Brisbane veteran Sam Thaiday has slammed the decision to suspend St George Illawarra star Tyson Frizell for touching a referee, saying there is "zero common sense" left in the NRL.

Frizell is set to miss Thursday's clash with Brisbane in Wollongong as he faces a one-match ban for contact on referee Chris James after brushing past him while running back into defensive position in his team's loss to Canterbury.

Thaiday, who will return from his own suspension to face the Dragons, said the NRL's punishments for such innocuous incidents were way out of proportion.
