Pettybourne to miss Panthers clash

Titans forward Eddy Pettybourne has taken an early plea after being charged with a grade one careless high tackle charge.

This means he will miss this Saturday's clash with Penrith Panthers (3pm). Pettybourne's charge attracted 112 points and he also had 74 carry over points from a previous charge.

After looking at the video of the incident - a 54th minute tackle on Eels prop Darcy Lussick - the Titans decided not to contest the charge. The in-form front-rower/back-rower will be missed as his performances have been consistently good in the first six rounds and he had not missed a game.
