Pettybourne facing three weeks out

28/03/2011 05:53:42 PM Comments (0)

South Sydney forward Eddy Pettybourne is facing three weeks on the sidelines following a dangerous throw charge arising out of Friday night's NRL win over Paramatta.

Pettybourne has received a grade two charge for a tackle on Eels centre Ryan Morgan early in the ANZ Stadium encounter.

He will miss three weeks if he enters an early guilty plea and four if he unsuccessfully defends the charge at the NRL judiciary.

Eels prop Fuifui Moimoi will miss a week with an early plea to a grade one careless high tackle charge.

Moimoi hit Souths prop Ben Ross high before being sinbinned for 10 minutes for dissent.

He will miss two weeks with an unsuccessful defence.

And Sydney Roosters backrower Mitch Aubusson will be free to play in Sunday's big clash with the Wests Tigers if he enters the early plea to a grade one dangerous throw charge.

Aubusson risks a week-long ban if he heads to the judiciary to defend his tackle on Canterbury winger Bryson Goodwin.
