Brown takes early guilty plea and apologises

The Parramatta Eels has today accepted the early guilty pleas regarding Dylan Brown and Marata Niukore's charges from Friday night.

Dylan Brown has been in contact with Sydney Roosters player Drew Hutchinson yesterday.

“No player likes to see anyone injured.

"Yesterday I contacted Drew to check up on him and apologise.

"I also let him know that it was an accident and never my intention for him to get hurt,” said Brown.

Parramatta Eels General Manager of Football Mark O’Neill said, “As a Club we never want to see serious injuries occur and we would like to pass on our best wishes to Drew for a swift recovery."

Brown will miss three matches for his dangerous contact charge, while Niukore will miss two weeks for a careless high tackle.
