Judiciary: Frizell accepts ban

UPDATE: Frizell has accepted the early guilty plea and will be suspended for one match.

EARLIER: nib Newcastle Knights back-rower Tyson Frizell has been cited by the NRL's Match Review Committee (MRC).

Frizell was charged with a Grade One Careless High Tackle for an incident in the 11th minute on Cronulla fullback Will Kennedy.

Should the Club enter an early guilty plea, Frizell will be hit with a penalty of 127 points and be suspended for one match.

Should the charge be fought at the panel and lost, Frizell will still miss just one match.

The Knights have until midday tomorrow to enter a plea.
