Dyldam Parramatta Eels forward Junior Paulo has entered an early guilty plea today for a Grade One Dangerous Contact charge following Sunday afternoon’s clash against the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles at Brookvale Oval.

Paulo was not penalised during the match, but was nonetheless charged for a tackle involving Sea Eagles player Blake Leary in the 30th minute of the match.

Paulo will be available to play in the upcoming Round 25 clash against the Cronulla Sharks at Pirtek Stadium.

The Eels take on the Sharks for the third annual Johnny Mannah Cup, in honour of the late Johnny Mannah, who was a member of both the Eels and Sharks NRL clubs.
