Tuqiri cops NRL ban

Aap
Wednesday, July 23, 2014

SYDNEY - South Sydney's Lote Tuqiri will miss Monday night's clash with Canberra after accepting a one-match NRL ban for a crusher tackle on Parramatta star Jarryd Hayne.

The Rabbitohs winger took the early guilty plea to a grade-two dangerous contact charge arising from the 22nd-minute incident in his side's win over the Eels on Friday.

He risked a two-week suspension if he unsuccessfully fought the charge.

The Eels' Joseph Paulo will be free to play this weekend, as will Penrith's Sika Manu, the Warriors' Manu Vatuvei and Wests Tigers' Austin Blake, after all pleaded guilty to grade-one careless high tackle charges.

Trent Hodkinson and Josh Jackson, as well as Corey Thompson have also escaped bans.
