Asotasi free to play on weekend

South Sydney captain Roy Asotasi will play in the NRL this weekend after taking an early guilty plea on his dangerous contact charge.

Asotasi had been cited for an incident during the Rabbitohs' 40-20 win over the Sydney Roosters on Monday night when he made contact with Jake Friend with his knees as the Roosters' hooker scored a try.

Asotasi took the guilty plea and also successfully applied for a seven-year incident free discount to avoid any ban and will play for Souths against the Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium on Sunday.

Melbourne's Adam Blair and Gold Coast's Anthony Laffranchi, the only other players charged after round 21, both received one-game bans on Tuesday after entering early guilty pleas.
