Mason, Gubb cop shoulder charge bans

Mason, Gubb cop shoulder charge bans

Manly's Willie Mason may have played his last game for the Sea Eagles and possibly last of his career after receiving a three-match suspension for a shoulder charge on Roosters prop Dylan Napa. Mason, 35, is unsigned for next season.

Warriors forward Charlie Gubb has received a four-match ban over two separate shoulder charges during his side's 50-16 loss to Wests Tigers. Gubb was cited for a shoulder charge on Ava Seumanufagai in the 56th minute and another shoulder charge in the 79th minute on Pat Richards, and has pleaded guilty to both charges.

Newcastle forward Korbin Sims will be free to play in the Knights' last game of the season against the Panthers after he was cleared of a dangerous contact charge at the NRL judiciary on Wednesday night.

Bulldogs forward Frank Pritchard (grade one careless high tackle) and Titan Kierran Moseley (grade one dangerous contact) have both avoided suspension with early guilty pleas. Later on Monday, Moseley took the early plea and will be free to face the Cowboys in Round 26.

From Thursday night's Round 25 clash, Broncos forward Alex Glenn will miss one match after pleading no contest to a dangerous contact charge on South Sydney's halfback Adam Reynolds, while Rabbitohs hooker Issac Luke will miss two matches following an early guilty plea to a shoulder charge on Broncos winger Corey Oates.

Canberra fullback Jack Wighton will miss the final game of the season after he was charged with a grade 2 careless high tackle on Panthers half Jamie Soward in the Raiders' 34-18 victory on Monday night. 

Wighton took an early guilty plea and will miss the Round 26 match against the Eels.
