Newcastle Knights forward Herman Ese'ese.

Newcastle Knights forward Herman Ese'ese has entered a guilty plea over an incident in the loss to the Parramatta Eels on the weekend.

Ese'ese, who joined the Knights in the off-season from the Brisbane Broncos, was slapped with a grade-one dangerous contact charge for a late hit on Eels halfback Mitchell Moses at Maitland.

He will not miss any matches after entering an early guilty plea and will be free to play in the Telstra Premiership opening-round clash with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.
