Vodafone Warriors back rower Sione Lousi will miss three matches after the NRL judiciary tonight found him guilty of a grade two dangerous throw charge he faced for a tackle on Wests Tigers second rower Cory Paterson in last Saturday’s clash at Westpac Stadium in Wellington.
Lousi had accepted the dangerous throw charge but was at the hearing in Sydney with head coach Matthew Elliott tonight seeking to have the grading reduced.
If successful Lousi would have been clear to take the field against Cronulla at Remondis Stadium on Saturday.
