Kennedy and Ramien charged, facing suspension

Will Kennedy and teammate Jesse Ramien are both facing suspensions after incidents stemming from the Sharks gutsy win over the Warriors on Sunday.

Kennedy was charged with a Grade 3 High tackle on opposition fullback Reece Walsh in the 17th minute of yesterday’s match, Ramien the same charge for a robust hit on Warriors back rower Euan Aitken that was deemed as high, with 25 minutes remaining in the game.  

For the Walsh incident Kennedy was sent from the field, leaving the Sharks to battle on a man short for 63 minutes, while Ramien was sinbinned for his indiscretion, meaning the Cronulla side was down to 11 players for 10 minutes of the second half.

After reviewing the tackles, the match review committee charges could see Kennedy miss two games with an early guilty plea, three should he challenge at a judiciary hearing and fail to have the charge downgraded or dismissed.

It was a first offence for Kennedy.

As for Ramien, the Sharks centre has loading from a prior offence, meaning his suspension would be three weeks should he accept the penalty, or four weeks for an unsuccessful challenge.

The Sharks have until midday tomorrow (Tuesday) to decide whether to fight or accept the charges.

Despite the Kennedy send off and Ramien sin-binning the Sharks scored a 29-10 victory over the Warriors to improve their record to six wins and three losses so far in 2022.

The Sharks play the Canberra Raiders at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane next Sunday during the NRL’s Magic Round.
