St George Illawarra to face stern test with prop suspended

5:22 pm on 14 April 2009

St George Illawarra prop Michael Weyman will miss Saturday night's National Rugby League match against Newcastle after taking the early guilty plea on a high tackle charge.

Weyman was charged after collecting Parramatta prop Fuifui Moimoi across the face with a swinging arm in the Dragons' 22-8 win on Friday night.

Melbourne centre Will Chambers and North Queensland hooker Aaron Payne also accepted early guilty pleas over dangerous thrown and chicken wing tackles respectively, though both are free to play this weekend.
