Bulldogs do not seek to contest the grading of centre’s spear tackle charge.
Canterbury will be without New Zealand centre Krisnan Inu for five weeks after the club elected to take the early guilty plea.
Inu was slapped with a grade four dangerous throw after his spear tackle on South star Greg Inglis last weekend.
If Inu had chosen to fight the charge and lost he could have been out of the side for up to eight games, which was a risk the club did not want to take after just four weeks of the season.
Filling Inu’s place in the side is youngster Tim Lafai, who got a taste of first grade last year, but is set to warm the seat of Inu, who should slot back into the centres upon his return.
In other news from Canterbury, skipper and captain Michael Ennis will need to pass cognitive tests before he is cleared to face Manly on Friday night, after copping a head knock against the Rabbitohs.
Manly will face their former coach on the back of three wins to start the season, including their impressive 26-0 shutout of the Wests Tigers.
