Tevaga suspended for next two matches

Utility forward Jazz Tevaga will miss the Vodafone Warriors' next two matches after taking an early guilty plea on a dangerous contact charge he landed for a tackle on Brisbane's Pat Carrigan last Saturday.

Tevaga landed a grade three charge for the 27th-minute tackle which resulted in Carrigan leaving the field.

The suspension rules Tevaga out of Friday night's fifth-round encounter with North Queensland and the sixth-round clash against the Sydney Roosters on April 17. He would be available again for the annual Anzac Day contest with Melbourne. 

Brisbane's Tom Flegler has also been suspended for two games for a grade three dangerous contact offence involving Vodafone Warriors interchange forward Ben Murdoch-Masila. The 71st-minute tackle also saw Murdoch-Masila helped from the field.

Flegler was put on report four times as the Vodafone Warriors beat the Broncos 20-6.

He landed charges for three of the four incidents.

Apart his suspension, he was fined $1000 for a seventh-minute grade one dangerous contact charge involving Vodafone Warriors hooker Wayde Egan and was hit with the same fine for a 21st-minute dangerous contact charge involving Vodafone Warriors captain Addin Fonua-Blake.
