Wests Tigers forward Sauaso Sue has been charged by the Match Review Committee from the Club’s Round 19 loss to the Manly Sea Eagles yesterday.

The 25-year-old forward was hit with a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact – Other charge for lifting his legs while running in a tackle from Apisai Koroisau in the 65th minute of the match.

Sue’s charge has attracted a 170-point charge with his 71 carry over points, meaning that he will miss the Club’s Round 20 clash against the Parramatta Eels regardless of an early guilty plea.

The Club has until 12:00pm Tuesday to enter a plea and has not done so yet.

Sea Eagles forward Darcy Lussick was also hit with a Grade 1 Contrary Conduct charge for pulling the hair of Aaron Woods, but will not miss a game with a fine $1,350 and the early plea.


  1. How come referee Aitkens wasn’t charged for his terrible attempt at refereeing (for both teams) last Friday???
    That was worse display of refereeing I’ve seen in along time.
    Finals are just around the corner and imo this is the worst bunch of refs the NRL has had.

    On another note Papali get’s 3 weeks for an intentional shoulder why wasn’t he sent off? The NRL are trying to get this out of the game so why aren’t the refs following the guidelines.
    We lost Dugan from the 57th minute and the Raiders should’ve lost Papali.
