Parramatta Eels lock Nathan Brown is set to miss the next two weeks of the NRL as he couldn’t get his charge downgraded at the NRL Judiciary on Tuesday night.

Brown was charged with having a grade two high tackle on Sydney Roosters player Victor Radley

Brown went to the judiciary to appeal the charge in a bid to downgrade it to a grade one but, the bid was unsuccessful.

It means he will miss the Eels’ upcoming Round 7 clash with the Canberra Raiders as well as their Round 8 clash with the North Queensland Cowboys


  1. Shouldn’t have even been an on field penalty let alone a 2 week ban.
    Radley did the same thing to Gutherson and gets a slap on the wrist and a $700 fine.
    Tedesco hit lane in the side of the head with an intentional elbow and Lane had to go off for a HIA.
    No onfield penalty and no judiciary for tedesco but no surprise as Roosters players don’t get sent to the judiciary.
    One rule for the Roosters and another for everyone else.
    Best part of that game was seeing Sivo steamroll Tedesco and knock him out. Beautiful to watch.
