Kiwi centre banned for three games

8:05 am on 20 May 2010

Manly's Kiwi league centre Steve Matai will miss three NRL matches after pleading guilty to two careless high tackle charges, including a grade five charge.

Matai has faced a total of nine charges in the last five years, and a former judicial panelist and Kiwi international from the Manly club, Darrell Williams, says he's warned Matai about having to change his aggressive tackling style.
