Manly’s Justin Horo will miss three NRL games after taking the early guilty plea on a grade three dangerous contact charge.
Manly back-rower Justin Horo will miss the next three NRL games after taking the early guilty plea on a dangerous contact charge.
Horo was hit with a grade three dangerous contact – unnecessary head/neck pressure charge emanating from an 11th minute tackle on Mitchell Moses in the Sea Eagles’ big round 18 win over Wests Tigers at Brookvale Oval on Friday.
The former Parramatta forward will miss games against St George Illawarra, the Warriors and Brisbane before returning for Manly’s round 22 clash with South Sydney at the SCG.
Anthony Watmough, who will return from suspension for Monday’s match against the Dragons at Kogarah Oval, is likely to take Horo’s spot in the Manly line-up.
In the only other judiciary charge from round 18 of the NRL, Tigers skipper Robbie Farah took the early guilty plea on a first half grade one dangerous throw on Manly prop Josh Starling in the same game, but is free to play against Canterbury at ANZ Stadium on Monday.
