Ricketson pleads guilty

Roosters lock Luke Ricketson has entered an early guilty plea on his striking charge from the NRL judiciary. The club will however contest the grading of the charge.

The original grade 3 charge would see Ricketson out for 3 weeks.

If the charge is successfully downgraded to a Grade 1, he will be clear to play in this Sunday's all important Grand Final against the Bulldogs.

The judiciary hearing is at NRL headquarters tomorrow (Wednesday) night.
