Eels prop likely to plead guilty to high shot

6:19 am on 18 March 2014

The National Rugby League club Parramatta will almost certainly accept an early guilty plea that'll rule prop Darcy Lussick out for four matches following a high tackle charge.

The National Rugby League's match review committee sited him for a grade four reckless high tackle for his swinging-arm high-shot on Sydney Roosters prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves in their 56-4 win over the Eels.

Should he try and fight the charge he'll appear before the NRL judiciary on Wednesday night where he risks six matches on the sidelines if he fails to overturn the charge.
