Gorden Tallis has urged the NRL not to 'go woke' and defended Penrith fans who booed Latrell Mitchell on Saturday night.

The superstar fullback was loudly jeered by sections of Panthers supporters after the reigning premiers' 32-12 win in the preliminary final at Accor Stadium on Saturday night.

Tallis didn't condone the booing, but insisted paying spectators were well within their rights to make their feelings known as long as they did not cross certain lines.

'It’s not right and are Penrith [fans] wrong? Yes,' he said on Triple M. 

'But do they have a right to boo? I think they do. 

'I actually think when you pay the money, if they’re not overstepping the line, and I don’t think booing [is] [...] I don’t want the crowd to go woke in our game and you want them to go and boo.'

The former Brisbane Broncos and Queensland great also suggested there were stages of the game where booing a player was more acceptable than others.  

Panthers fans made their feelings known as they watched their team erase a 12-point deficit to beat the Bunnies 32-12 in the second preliminary final
