Nelson takes early plea

Nelson Asofa-Solomona is available to play in Monday night’s ANZAC Day blockbuster against the Warriors after taking an early plea for his grade one tripping charge.

The young Kiwi prop was placed on report for the incident that occurred in the 48th minute in Sunday’s win against Wests Tigers.

Asofa-Solomona’s early plea means he will have 90 carry over points to his name but is available for selection this week.
