Kirisome Auva’a has taken the early guilty plea for a grade one dangerous contact – head neck charge, while Paul Carter will seek a downgrade of his grade two dangerous contact charge at the Match Review Committee this week.

The early plea decision clears the way for Auva’a to play in the Good Friday clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs this Friday if selected.

For Carter, successfully downgrading his grade two charge will see the forward accrue 75 points, allowing him to play in this Friday’s match at ANZ Stadium. Unsuccessfully fighting the charge would see Carter miss two matches with 250 points.
