David Taylor out for 5 weeks

South Sydney and Queensland Maroons forward David Taylor has been suspended for five weeks at the NRL Judiciary tonight.

The rising star had been charged with a Grade 2 dangerous throw in last Friday's clash with Brisbane Broncos, and with an early guilty plea was set to miss four weeks. Taylor went to the Judiciary tonight in a bid to have the charge downgraded and failed, resulting in an additional week being added to his charge.

Taylor will now miss five South Sydney Rabbitohs' matches, with his return scheduled for the Bunnies' Round 23 clash against Canberra.
