Pritchard to go before NRL judiciary

6:40 pm on 6 March 2012

The Canterbury and Kiwis player Frank Pritchard will appear before the National Rugby League judiciary tomorrow night after pleading not guilty to a careless tackle on Penrith winger David Simmons.

If he loses, Pritchard will miss Saturday's clash with St George Illawarra.

Pritchard was charged with a high tackle which left Simmons concussed in last Saturday night's win over the Panthers.

Even if he'd taken an early guily plea Pritchard would've missed the upcoming game as he has carry over disciplinary points from last season.
