Two Panthers Charged; No Charge for Ellis
NRL Mon, 13 Sep 2010 14:35:00
Two Panthers players are among five charged by the NRL Match Review Committee today from the weekend’s Telstra Premiership Qualifying Finals, while Tigers’ Gareth Ellis, who was placed on report during his side’s dramatic loss to the Roosters, avoided a charge.
Penrith’s Tim Grant was charged with a Grade 1 careless high tackle but will not miss a game; while team-mate Iosefa Masada was charged with Grade 1 dangerous contact for unnecesary arm/ shoulder pressure and will escape suspension with an early plea.
The warriors’ Brett Seymour faces a 1-2 week ban for a Grade 2 striking charge in the Titans clash; and the Eagles’ Matt Ballin and Anthony Watmough will both avoid suspension if they take the early plea on Grade 1 dangerous contact charges in their 28-0 drubbing from the Dragons.
Here is something to cheer you up even more:
Reviewers clear Tigers duo
AAP Mon, 13 Sep 2010 16:11:50
Gareth Ellis and Simon Dwyer are free to play in Friday night’s semi-final against Canberra after the NRL match review committee concluded the Wests Tigers duo had no cases to answer for.
Ellis and Dwyer were both in danger of attracting high tackle charges following the Tigers’ 19-15 loss to the Sydney Roosters on Saturday night.
English international Ellis was put on report for a high tackle on Rosters playmaker Todd Carney, while Dwyer caught Jared Waerea-Hargreaves on the chin with a monumental hit which preceded Braith Anasta’s frantic last-second field goal that sent the game into extra time.
Five players were charged following the weekend’s opening round of finals, but they will have no effect on this week’s semi-finals.
Penrith duo Masada Iosefa and Tim Grant will both be available to take on the Sydney Roosters on Saturday night provided they take the early plea on dangerous contact and high tackle charges respectively.
The same situation applies to Manly pair Matt Ballin and Anthony Watmough, who were both charged as the Sea Eagles bowed out from the finals with a 28-0 loss to St George Illawarra on Sunday.
Ballin copped a grade one dangerous contact charge for his late hit on Dragons kicker Jamie Soward, while Watmough was picked up for an unnecessary use of the knee in a late flop on Ben Hornby.
Warriors halfback Brett Seymour will miss the club’s opening trial game of 2011 if he pleads guilty to a striking charge, but risks a two-game ban if he unsuccessfully challenges it.
