Judiciary Report: Gilbert takes early guilty plea for Tupou tackle

North Queensland forward Tom Gilbert has taken the early guilty plea and been fined $3000 for his high tackle on Wests Tigers debutant Junior Tupou in the opening minutes of their Magic Round clash.

As it is Gilbert's third offence for the year, his fine escalated to $3000 with the early guilty plea. Had he fought the charge and been unsuccessful at the judiciary he faced a two-game ban.

Storm winger Nick Meaney, Warriors second-rower Jack Murchie, Titans forward Sam McIntyre, Canterbury forward Chris Patolo and Manly prop Toafofoa Sipley all took the early guilty plea on charges arising from Magic Round.
