Front row forward David Klemmer has tonight received a downgrade after appearing at the NRL Judiciary.

Klemmer was seeking to have his charge ‘thrown out’ but has this evening had his charge reduced to a Grade 1, meaning he will miss just one match and will be available for the Round 2 match against the Penrith Panthers.

Klemmer was originally charged with Grade 2 – Dangerous Contact after an incident that occurred in the 46th minute of play on Storm interchange forward Kenny Bromwich during last weekend’s trial match at Belmore Sports Ground.
