Woolford and Fletcher outed for two
Canberra captain Simon Woolford and his South Sydney counterpart Bryan Fletcher have been suspended for two matches by the National Rugby League judiciary.
Both pleaded guilty to careless high tackle charges today.
Woolford was charged with a grade three offence following his tackle on Manly's Luke Williamson on Sunday, for which he was sent off. He'll miss games against North Queensland and Newcastle.
Fletcher was charged with a grade two offence and will miss this weekend's game against his former club the Sydney Roosters and the Rabbitohs' following match against North Queensland. North Queensland prop Paul Rauhihi and Souths hooker Jason Death have also entered early guilty pleas to grade one careless high tackle charges.
However, neither players will accrue enough penalty points to miss a match.
