Parramatta Eels forward Nathan Brown has taken the early guilty plea after been charged by the NRL Match Review Committee following the team’s clash with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in Round 23 at Bankwest Stadium.
He will miss two weeks and will be free to play finals footy, following a hit on Dallin Watene-Zelezniak in the 47th minute of Thursday night’s match.
His charge has a base penalty of 350 points, with 262 points for an early guilty plea.
Brown was facing a three-week ban, but has had it reduced to two weeks after taking the early guilty plea.
He will be available to play for the first week of finals football.
