Hopoate Takes Early Guilty Plea

Dyldam Parramatta Eels fullback Will Hopoate has entered an early guilty plea today for a Grade 1 Careless High Tackle charge, and will be available for this Saturday's match against the Gold Coast Titans. 

Hopoate was charged for a tackle on Wests Tigers Pat Richards in the 77th minute of their Round 5 clash at ANZ Stadium on Easter Monday, and the charge attracts a penalty of 75 points, reduced to 56 with an early guilty plea. 

Hopoate and the Eels take on the Gold Coast Titans on Saturday afternoon at 3pm at Parramatta's Pirtek Stadium, as part of a Round 6 triple-header. Be at the game for as little as $20 for a family of four to see all three grades in action! Click through to purchase your tickets via Ticketmaster.
