Crichton pleads guilty, Faitala-Mariner faces fine

Sydney Roosters second-rower Angus Crichton will avoid suspension after pleading guilty to a dangerous contact charge stemming from Monday night's win over the Bulldogs.

Crichton was charged with a grade one offence after colliding with Bulldogs five-eighth Lachlan Lewis in the 10th minute of the match at Bankwest Stadium.

The early guilty plea, means the back-rower will be able to play in his side's clash with the Parramatta Eels on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, Canterbury forward Raymond Faitala-Mariner can escape with a $550 fine if he pleads guilty to a ninth minute grade one contrary conduct charge involving Roosters prop Siosiua Taukeiaho.
