Mitchell found guilty at Judiciary

Sydney Roosters centre Latrell Mitchell has been found guilty by the match review committee for a crusher tackle on Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks outside back Josh Dugan.

Mitchell received a grade one dangerous contact charge following the Tricolours win over the Sharks in last Sunday's qualifying final. 

An early guilty plea would have resulted in a one-week suspension with Mitchell owning 75 carry over points following an early guilty plea he took in Round 25 for a cannonball tackle on Parramatta Eels' back Clint Gutherson. 

The State of Origin Representative will now miss next weekend's preliminary final match against the winner of Saturday night's semi-final between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the St. George Illawarra Dragons.
