Judiciary Report - Te'o, Auva'a, McQueen - Rd 23, 2014
South Sydney Rabbitohs players, Ben Te’o, Chris McQueen and Kirisome Auva’a have all been charged for incidents coming out of last night’s victory over the Brisbane Broncos.
Ben Te’o has been charged with a grade two dangerous contact - arm/shoulder pressure charge for an incident in the 55th minute. The base penalty for the charge is 250 points, however Te’o also has 45 carry-over points from prior offences. An early guilty plea would see Te’o receive 438 points, meaning the back-rower would miss four matches, while unsuccessfully fighting the charge would accrue 570 points, resulting in a five-match suspension.
Both Rabbitohs centre, Kirisome Auva’a, and back-rower, Chris McQueen, have been charged with grade one dangerous contact - unnecessary head/neck pressure charges for incidents in the 44th and 43rd minute respectively. Base penalty for the charge is 100 points, with an early guilty plea resulting in 75 points, meaning both players would miss no matches.
