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 from 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.
