Souths star Luke suspended for one NRL match

10:44 am on 10 June 2010

The South Sydney Rabbitohs hooker Issac Luke will miss this Sunday's clash with Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium after being found guilty of a dangerous contact charge at the NRL rugby league judiciary.

The New Zealand international was charged with making dangerous contact with the kicker, following a challenge on North Queensland halfback Johnathan Thurston during Souths' 32-4 win over the Cowboys at ANZ Stadium on Monday night.

Souths, who sit in third place on the NRL ladder, will also be without in-form prop David Taylor for the Broncos clash with the big man named in the Queensland State of Origin squad.
