Sims cops one match ban and fine

Fiji Bati and Saint George Illawarra Dragons forward Tariq Sims has been handed a one-week suspension and a $1,500 fine after he was hit with two charges following their 32-18 loss to Brisbane Broncos yesterday.
 
Sims has been charged with Dangerous Contact for his late hit on Adam Reynolds, and has been fined $1000 with an early guilty plea, increasing to $1500 if he fights the charge and loses.
 
Also, a high shot on Rhys Kennedy has seen Sims handed a Grade Two Careless High Tackle charge which carries a one-game ban with an early guilty plea or two games with an unsuccessful challenge at the judiciary.
 
In Round 18 of NRL, the Dragons will face Sydney Roosters at 5 pm on Saturday.
