Rabbitohs, Storm cop

South Sydney will be without hooker Stuart Webb until round seven of the NRL competition after he pleaded guilty to a grade one reckless high tackle charge. In a further blow to the Rabbitohs, promising centre Yileen Gordon will also miss this weekend's clash with Cronulla after pleading guilty to a grade one careless high tackle.

In other judiciary news, North Queensland playmaker Johnathan Thurston will be free to play in Friday night's blockbuster against Parramatta after entering an early guilty plea to a grade one striking charge.

Melbourne centre Greg Inglis also escaped suspension after pleading guilty to a grade one contrary conduct charge. The news was not as good for Storm teammate Antonio Kaufusi, who will miss two matches after pleading guilty to a grade two reckless high tackle charge.
