Marika Koroibete will miss Round 5 after Storm today accepted an early guilty plea on a tripping charge from Monday night's game.

Koroibete was cited for a trip in the 61st minute of his side's meeting with Cronulla for a trip on Sharks playmaker Chad Townsend.

The incident itself was deemed insufficient of a week on the sidelines (67 points) however the addition of Koroibete's carry over points from Round 1 this season will see the Flying Fijian miss Saturday's clash with the Knights.
