Wests Tigers forward Sauaso Sue will miss Sunday's game against the Parramatta Eels after taking the early guilty plea to his Grade 1 Dangerous Contact - Other charge from Round 19.

He will be available for selection in the Club's Round 21 game against the Gold Coast Titans.

His replacement in Wests Tigers Round 20 team will be revealed at 4:00pm today.

 

*** ORIGINAL — Monday, July 17 at 11:00am ***

Wests Tigers forward Sauaso Sue has been charged by the Match Review Committee from the Club's Round 19 loss against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles yesterday.

The 25-year-old forward was hit with a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact - Other charge for lifting his legs while running in a tackle from Apisai Koroisau in the 65th minute of the match.

Sue's charge has attracted a 170-point charge with his 71 carryover points, meaning that he will miss the Club's Round 20 clash against the Parramatta Eels regardless of an early guilty plea.

The Club has until 12:00pm Tuesday to enter a plea and has not done so yet.

Sea Eagles forward Darcy Lussick was also hit with a Grade 1 Contrary Conduct charge for pulling the hair of Aaron Woods, but will not miss a game with a fine $1,350 and the early plea.

Be there at ANZ Stadium on Sunday, July 23 when we take on the Parramatta Eels!
