Su’A free for finals after escaping shoulder charge ban

Jaydn Su’A will be free to play in the first week of the finals if he accepts an early guilty plea for a brutal hit on Lachlan Lewis, which the NRL match review committee deemed not to be a shoulder charge.

Rabbitohs back-rower Su’A, who was sin-binned for the first half collision with Lewis in South Sydney’s shock loss to cellar-dwellers Canterbury on Thursday night, was charged with a grade two careless high tackle.

He will miss one match with an early guilty plea, which will be South Sydney’s final-round fixture against two-time defending premiers the Roosters next Friday night. It would enable him to return for their elimination final the following week.

Su’A could risk missing that match if he chooses to fight the charge at the NRL judiciary, which will result in a two-game ban if he loses.
