Eels to Seek Robinson Downgrade
The Dyldam Parramatta Eels have today responded to charges issued by the Match Review Committee on behalf of prop Darcy Lussick, centre Brad Takairangi and winger Reece Robinson.
The Club will seek a downgrade to Reece Robinson's Grade 2 Dangerous Throw Charge, and the winger will appear with Senior Counsel and Eels officials on Wednesday night at the NRL Judiciary at Moore Park.
Robinson's Grade 2 Dangerous Throw charge, for his tackle on Joel Reddy in the 71st minute of the Eels' Round 4 match, attracts a 2 week suspension with an early plea. If the Judiciary downgrades the charge, Robinson will be eligible to play this weekend. If the grade 2 is maintained, Robinson will miss 3 games.
Lussick has entered a guilty plea for a Grade 1 Careless High Tackle, and will be available for selection for this week's Round 5 match against the Wests Tigers.
Brad Takairangi will plead no contest to a Grade 1 Dangerous Throw charge for a tackle on Joel Reddy late in Friday night's clash with the South Sydney Rabbitohs. He will not be eligible to play this weekend.
