Matterson to miss three weeks

Ryan Matterson will spend three weeks on the sideline, after taking the early guilty plea at the NRL judiciary for a careless high tackle.

The 26-year-old was served a grade three careless high tackle charge for a hit on Manly's Brad Parker in Round 22.

He won't be available until the first week of NRL finals.

Teammates Joey Lussick (cannonball tackle) and Maika Sivo (careless high tackle) both also took the early guilty plea for their charges.

Lussick will be fined $750 and is free to play this week.

Sivo has been fined $1700 and can also play in Round 23.
