Whitehead has taken the early guilty plea on a grade two tripping charge and will miss one match and incur 50 carry-over points.
Canberra Raiders forward Elliott Whitehead is facing time on the sidelines for a trip on Alex Glenn in Friday night’s loss to the Broncos.
Whitehead has been handed a Grade 2 tripping charge by theMatch Review Committee.
If Whitehead takes the Early Plea he will miss one match but if he fights the charge and losses, he faces two weeks on the sideline.
The Raiders are yet to make a decision on the charge and will review the incident before entering a plea.
