Magpies against the Blues on April 5.

The penalties from last Thursday’s (April 5) match between the Queanbeyan Blues and Yass Magpies have been handed out after the judiciary met on Wednesday, April 11.

CRRL General Manager Mark Vergano said that he agreed with the referee’s decision to send players from the field and supported the judiciary’s final decision.

“The actions displayed last Thursday night were unacceptable,” Vergano said.

“We fully support the referee’s decision and will ensure this kind of behaviour is stamped out of our game.”

Taking into consideration discounts for good behaviour over the last two seasons and players taking the early plea, Mitchell Edwards, Terry Campese and Jake Wheeler will all miss one match.

Similarly, Michael Cullen will miss two matches.

Benny Warner will miss five matches after his suspension was increased due to other offences in the last two seasons.

Warner also received a discount for taking the early plea.

Aisea Taholo was sent directly to the judiciary and will miss three matches.

Willie Peace is set to front the judiciary next week where his suspension will be determined.
