North Wagga defender Matt Thomas will miss the Saints’ qualifying final clash with Temora on Saturday due to suspension.
Thomas accepted a one-game suspension, with an early guilty plea, for striking Marrar’s Rory Block in last Saturday’s final round blockbuster at Langtry Oval.
The incident was graded as intentional, low impact and high contact.
Thomas also pleaded guilty to instigating a melee and accepted a reprimand.
He will miss the Saints showdown with Temora at Robertson Oval on Saturday, but return for their second final.
Meantime, Coleambally defender Tom Morton accepted a reprimand after being reported for striking against Charles Sturt University last Saturday.
