Sims takes early guilty plea

St George Illawarra back-rower Tariq Sims has taken the early guilty plea on a grade one dangerous contact charge following the Dragons' 40-20 win over the Sharks on Friday night.

Sims was charged with elbowing Sharks halfback Chad Townsend in the face with the ball in-hand midway through the first half.

The Fijian international will line up against the New Zealand Warriors on Friday night but has racked up 90 demerit points as a result of the charge.
