Sharks veteran facing ban for high shot

Veteran Sharks front-rower Aiden Tolman is set for a one-match ban for his high shot on young Raiders fullback Xavier Savage on the Gold Coast last night.

Tolman’s shot on the Canberra rookie was cited by the match review committee as a grade-one careless tackle.

Tolman now has the option of fighting the charge at the judiciary in an attempt to have his one-match suspension overruled.

However, he will even miss Cronulla’s match against Canterbury on the Gold Coast next Sunday if he accepts the early guilty plea, due to carry-over points.

The Raiders clinched a 34-18 win over the Sharks to bag a second victory in succession, bolstering their top-eight finals chances.
