Judiciary Report: Moale, Laybutt, Biddle receive fines

Moale, Laybutt, and Biddle were fined, according to the judiciary report.

Zac Laybutt of the PNG Kumuls and Davvy Moale of the Cook Islands were both found guilty of the charges related to the match played on Sunday in Port Moresby and were sentenced to fines equal to a portion of their match fees.

For a Crusher Tackle on Kumuls bench forward Rhys Dakin, Laybutt has been fined 10% of his match fee.

Moale entered an early guilty plea to a charge of dangerous contact for a trip on Kumuls winger Alex Johnston and was fined 7% of his match fee.

Annessa Biddle, a winger for the Kiwi Ferns, was fined for a dangerous throw offense and will now be available for her team’s match against Mate Ma’a in week two of the Pacific Championships.

The Jillaroos captain Ali Brigginshaw was injured during an altercation with the Sharks’ NRLW back, which resulted in Brigginshaw’s sin-bin stint in the 16-10 defeat’s final minute.

Given that it was Biddle’s second and subsequent offense of that kind, a one-match suspension was a possibility; however, under Rule 39A, she could choose to pay a $400 fine in exchange for pleading guilty quickly.

Jaime Chapman, a Jillaroos back, was charged with dangerous contact and, following an early guilty plea, was given a Warning.
