Webb and Gordon avoid suspension

North Queensland prop Carl Webb has escaped suspension after entering an early guilty plea today. Webb was charged with a grade one dangerous throw for his tackle on South Sydney's Adam MacDougall during the Cowboys' 30-16 win over the Rabbitohs last Sunday.

The Queensland Origin forward faced a one-game ban if he unsuccessfully fought the charge.

Meanwhile, MacDougall's centre partner Yileen Gordon also entered an early guilty plea for a grade one careless high tackle on Cowboys forward Luke O'Donnell.

Gordon's clean record ensured he did not risk suspension if he contested the charge.
