NRL Judiciary: Kane Evans downgrade bid unsuccesful

Parramatta Eels forward Kane Evans’ downgrade bid was tonight (Tuesday 10 September) unsuccessful at the NRL judiciary hearing, meaning the forward will miss the upcoming elimination final against the Brisbane Broncos at Bankwest Stadium on Sunday 15 September.

Evans challenged the grading of his Grade Two Careless High tackle charge on Manly’s Brad Parker following an incident in the 68th minute of the Eels' Round 25 clash against the Sea Eagles.

Evans was facing a game out whether he went to the judiciary or not so the unsuccessful downgrading means Evans will not miss any extra game time compared with an early guilty plea.

As a result of the unsuccessful downgrade, Evans has been suspended for one game and will not be available to take his place in the Blue & Gold side to face the Brisbane Broncos this weekend.
