Lus­sick faces NRL fine for hair pull on Woods

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

Moore was puz­zled by those ques­tion­ing the sign­ing.

“He’s a fan­tas­tic fit for us,” Moore told the Bul­letin.

“How many other A- League clubs have got some­one who played in the Serie A ( Italy’s topflight) last sea­son?

“He has scored at the high­est level for al­most his en­tire ca­reer, and Ital­ian play­ers know how to keep them­selves fit.

“We are de­lighted that he has made the de­ci­sion to play for our foot­ball club.” MANLY’S Darcy Lus­sick is fac­ing a fine for pulling Aaron Woods’ hair in a tackle dur­ing Sun­day’s win over Wests Tigers.

Prop Lus­sick used two hands to pull Woods down by the hair as the Tigers cap­tain ran the ball up early in the sec­ond half of the Sea Ea­gles’ 28- 16 win.

Lus­sick can ac­cept a $ 1350 fine with an early guilty plea for the con­trary con­duct charge over the in­ci­dent.

Mean­while, Tigers for­ward Sauaso Sue faces a one- match ban af­ter be­ing charged with dan­ger­ous con­duct.

Sue raised his knee and col­lected Manly hooker Api Koroisau in the 65th minute. He will miss Sun­day’s clash with Par­ra­matta with an early guilty plea. Can­berra prop Josh Pa­palii will miss two matches af­ter ac­cept­ing a two- game ban for a shoul­der charge on St Ge­orge Illawarra’s Josh Du­gan, with the in­ci­dent oc­cur­ring in the Raiders’ golden- point win on Fri­day night at GIO Sta­dium.

Manly for­ward Darcy Lus­sick.
