Judiciary, Dale Finucane, Sharks, Corey Waddell, Bulldogs, Round 19, verdict, charge, result

Sharks skipper Dale Finquan and Bulldogs forward Corey Waddell made headlines on Tuesday night when they met their fates on separate occasions in round 19.

Finucane has pleaded not guilty to a 3rd degree charge of dangerous contact in a charge against Panthers center Stephen Crichton.

Waddell has been sent straight to the NRL judiciary after he was charged with unqualified dangerous contact over an eye gouge on Titans skipper Tino Faasumalewi.

Finucane collided with Crichton, leaving the Panthers star with a nasty cut on his left ear that required a visit to hospital for plastic surgery.

The Sharks star faces a three-game ban if found guilty by the judiciary.

Waddell could be sidelined for a long time if he is found guilty of eye strain in one of rugby league’s worst on-field incidents.

Judiciary is scheduled to begin on Tuesday evening from 6:00 PM.

Gabbar asked Finucane about his altercation with the Sharks boss when he said he was trying to put pressure on a neutral player with his team trailing 14-10 with nine minutes remaining.

Seven camera angles of Finucane’s tackle on Crichton were shown without comment or vote by the judiciary panel.

Finucane was initially represented by Nick Gabbar, who works with Patrick Knowles as NRL prosecutor.
