Horo will miss three games after being handed a dangerous contract charge
Manly back-rower Justin Horo will miss his side’s next three NRL matches after taking the early guilty plea for a dangerous contact charge.
Horo was cited by the NRL judiciary after his ‘crusher tackle’ on Wests Tigers youngster Mitchell Moses during his the Sea Eagles’ 40-8 win at Brookvale Oval on Friday.
The judiciary hit Horo with a grade three dangerous contact – unnecessary head/neck pressure charge, meaning he will miss games against St. George Illawarra, New Zealand Warriors and Brisbane Broncos before returning for his club’s clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 22.
Anthony Watmough is likely to take Horo’s spot in the line-up after returning from suspension for the Sea Eagles’ match against the Dragons at Kogarah Oval on Monday night.
In other judiciary news, Wests Tigers captain Robbie Farah is free to play Caterbury this week after taking the early guilty plea for a dangerous throw on Manly prop Josh Starling.
