Brydens Lawyers Judiciary Update

Newcastle Knights centre Peter Mata’utia has been charged by the Match Review Committee following Sunday’s Round 18 clash at Belmore.

Mata’utia was found to have tripped Bulldogs second rower Faitala- Mariner Raymond in the first minute of the game.

With a guilty plea the Newcastle centre will face a reduced fine as he has no prior offences and will be free to play against the Brisbane Broncos in Round 19.
