Sharks pair takes early pleas

Cronulla Sharks forwards Bryce Gibbs and Matt Prior have each taken the early plea to charges arising from Monday night's game against the Bulldogs and will each escape suspension.

Gibbs was cited for a Grade 1 careless high tackle for his 11th-minute hit on Dale Finucane, while Prior was cited for a 62nd-minute shot on Sam Perrett.

With no carry-over points, both players are free to line up against the Dragons at Remondis Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
