Hodgson accepts early guilty plea

Josh Hodgson has accepted an early guilty plea for his Grade 1 dangerous contact charge and will be free to play this Saturday against the Manly Sea Eagles at Lavington Sports Ground, Albury.

Hodgson was charged in the 59th minute for his tackle on Sydney Rooster's player Boyd Cornder, in which he was deemed to have applied unnecessary pressure to Cordner's arm/shoulder.

Due to his clean record in the NRL, Hodgson will not miss a game but will sustain 75 carry-over points.
