Sharks half back Brett Kimmorley will miss this weekend's clash against Manly after pleading guilty to a grade one careless high tackle, his first suspension ever in the NRL.
He was placed on report following a tackle on Penrith winger Luke Rooney in the 68th minute of Saturday night's victory over the 2003 Premiers. But teammate Danny Nutley has decided to roll the dice and will contest a grade one dangerous throw charge, hopefully clearing him to play at Brookvale Oval.
Speaking of Manly, they will have Terry Hill in their side despite him pleading guilty to a careless high tackle. The charge did not accrue enough penalty points for him to be suspended.
Meanwhile, Panther's forward Tony Puletua will take his usual place in the line-up this week, after copping a guilty plea to a contrary conduct charge, which also fell short of suspension proportions.
