Ramien takes the early plea

Sharks centre Jesse Ramien will miss the next three matches after accepting the early guilty plea on a match review committee charge for a high tackle on Dragons fullback Matt Dufty.

The first half incident, which sparked a push and shove between the two teams, was allocated a grade one reckless high tackle charge, with a base penalty of 400 points, 300 for the early plea.  

After deciding not to challenge, Ramien will now be sidelined until the Sharks round five match against the Roosters. 

Ramien could have challenged his guilt or innocence, or elected to try to have the charge downgraded, however if unsuccessful he would have been suspended for four games. 

Aiden Tolman was also charged with dangerous contact on Mikaele Ravalawa in the 28th minute of the match and has also accepted the early guilty plea. Tolman's charge attracted a $1,050 fine for the early plea and he will be available for the round two clash against the Raiders this Sunday.
