Scott charged for striking
Storm Centre Curtis Scott has been charged with striking following Melbourne's fiery contest with Manly on Saturday night.
The 20-year old was sent off during the clash after striking Sea Eagles outside back Dylan Walker in the 52nd minute of play. The Match Review Committee handed down their findings this afternoon with Scott able to accept a two match ban with an early guilty plea (thanks to a points deduction due to the number of minutes of play he missed after being sent off) while an unsuccessful challenge of the charge could see the centre miss three matches.
Following the confrontation between Scott and Walker, Apisai Koroisau was also sent to the sin bin for striking. The Manly utility will miss one match with an early guilty plea after also being charged today.
Storm forward Nelson Asofa-Solomona escaped the contest with a $1,500 fine for a careless high tackle in the closing stages of the match.
