King had his reckless high tackle charge downgraded, while Penrith’s Jeremy Latimore failed in his bid to have a crusher tackle charge dropped at the NRL judiciary.
Retiring Manly prop Jason King is set for a Brookvale Oval farewell after having a reckless high tackle charge downgraded at the NRL judiciary.
King would have missed his farewell in front of his home fans had he have unsuccessfully challenged a grade-two charge for a hit on Parramatta second-rower Tepai Moeroa on the weekend.
Meanwhile, Penrith’s playing stocks took another blow with after prop Jeremy Latimore failed in his bid to get a crusher tackle charge downgraded.
Latimore was hit with a grade-two charge of dangerous contact – unnecessary head/neck pressure on Melbourne’s Bryan Norrie from their Monday night clash and will sit out the two remaining games in the home-and-away season ahead of the finals series.
Penrith will face off against the Manly Sea Eagles on Sunday.
