The Roosters entered a not guilty plea for Waerea-Hargreaves following his charge from an incident in the 71st minute of the Roosters’ Qualifying Final match against the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Waerea-Hargreaves argued the alleged trip was an accident but the judiciary panel disagreed, suspending him for one match over the incident.
“I’m disappointed with the result, but have full faith in my team and look forward to helping them prepare as best as possible,” Waerea-Hargreaves said after the hearing.
