Well, that fight was over after one round.

Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will miss this Friday’s clash with the Bulldogs after they club elected to take the early guilty plea for the Grade 2 careless high tackle charge stemming from this hit on Glenn Stewart last week:


He’ll miss just the one game. Roosters fans were calling for the club to fight the charge, but had he fought and lost, the Kiwi front-rower would have missed two matches. He’s now been suspended six times in four years, including twice last year.

Here’s the statement from the Roosters fromĀ their website:

The Sydney Roosters have today entered an early guilty plea in regards to the charge made against front-rower Jared Waerea-Hargreaves by the NRL Match Review Committee from last Friday’s clash with the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.

Hargreaves was charged with a Grade 2 Careless High Tackle following an incident involving Manly’s Glenn Stewart in the 19th minute.

The early plea will see the Kiwi International miss this Friday night’s Men of League Heritage Round showdown with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Allianz Stadium.

  1. Bugger- Bugger – BUGGER! So dissappointed, I can’t see what was wrong with that tackle… The judiciary system seems to be just a lottery – one that JHW is never destined to win!!!


    • You can’t see anything wrong with the tackle because there’s nothing wrong wrong with it.

      To be honest though, a break could do him good. He hasn’t been close to his best this year.


  2. I thought he played well last week and was just warming into some form. That charge is a joke. If you can’t tackle a player front on with your chest and shoulder, what can you do?

  4. F…ing ridiculous. So sick of our club! At least Souths fight for their players! There is nothing wrong with that tackle & I have watched it until my eyes popped out! Soweed will be the best player ever soon because they will turn the game into touch football! F…ing seething!!!!


    • I don’t know where the game is heading. I agree that the shoulder charge should be outlawed, scientific studies have shown the damage caused to brains from it. But JWH’s was NOT a shoulder charge — Glenn Stewart fell into it, and JWH couldn’t disappear. Are players not allowed to hit with force anymore? That’s the only thing that was in that tackle; a bit of force. Totally accidental.
