Five-eighth Josh Reynolds has today taken the early guilty plea for his charge of Grade 1 – Tripping.

The incident occurred in the 51st minute of play on Country back rower Tariq Sims and carries a base penalty of 75 points. With a ‘Prior Similar Offence’ in the past two years, plus four ‘non-similar offences’, Reynolds had a 50% loading added that took his tally to 129, meaning he will miss one match.

Reynolds will miss this weekend’s match against the Cowboys and will be available for selection for the home match at ANZ Stadium against the Roosters on Friday, 15 May.
