Thompson unsuccessful at judiciary

Luke Thompson has unsuccessfully challenged a grade-two dangerous contact charge for an incident involving Sharks hooker Blayke Brailey.

The grade two dangerous contact charge has been upheld and he's received 340 demerit points – a three-match ban.

The 26-year-old will miss the round 20 clash with the Titans plus matches against the Wests Tigers and Warriors.

He could have accepted a two-match ban with an early guilty plea but will now serve an extra week as well as incurring 40 carryover points.

A replacement for Thompson in this week’s line-up will be confirmed later in the week.
