Luke and Keary Facing Suspensions
Issac Luke and Luke Keary have both been charged by the match review committee after their win over the North Queensland Cowboys.
Keary has been charged with a grade one shoulder charge which carries a base penalty of 200 points. The Rabbitohs No.6 can take an early guilty plea which would reduce the penalty by 25 per cent, thus missing one match.
To make matters worse for the defending premiers, hooker Issac Luke is also facing some time on the sideline with two charges out of the match against the Cowboys.
Luke was also charged with a grade one shoulder charge on Johnathan Thurston and a dangerous throw on Lachlan Coote. With prior offences in the past two years, Luke would miss three matches with an early guilty plea, ruling him out until the NRL finals.
The Kiwi hooker infamously missed the Rabbitohs' grand final win over the Bulldogs last season due to suspension.
