Buhrer free to play against Broncos

Newcastle Knights forward Jamie Buhrer has entered an early guilty plea over an incident in the loss to the St George Illawarra Dragons on Easter Sunday.

Buhrer was slapped with a Grade One careless high tackle charge in the 62nd minute of the match.

He will not miss any matches after entering the early guilty plea and will be free to play in this Saturday’s Round 5 clash against the Brisbane Broncos at McDonald Jones Stadium.
