Canberra centre Nick Cotric has entered an early guilty plea and will miss three matches, after he was charged with a Grade 3 Dangerous Throw on Sunday.
Cotric was sent off for a tackle on Dragon Tim Lafai, and was handed 500 points by the match review committee, although that's come down to 375 following the early plea.
The centre will now miss the Raiders' next three matches against the Tigers, Panthers and Warriors.
Ricky Stuart needs to lay off the kool-aid if he believes Cotric’s tackle wasn’t a spear tackle. Whilst it was no Kearney on McCracken, if a player is dropped on his head through a defensive manoeuvre, what do you call it then Rick? pic.twitter.com/VYGL8uF4Zn #NRLDragonsRaiders #NRL
