Roosters prop Zane Tetevano and Sea Eagles forward Darcy Lussick are both opting to head to the judiciary and fight their respective charges.
Tetevano has entered a guilty plea, but will dispute the nature of his offense. He was facing a three-game ban, which could potentially rule him out of the Roosters’ entire finals campaign.
Lussick has pleaded not guilty to a tripping charge. That offense typically is punished with a fine, however he’s facing a one-week suspension because he’s a repeat offender.
