Young found guilty of dangerous contact charge


//

Canberra Raiders youngster Hudson Young has been found guilty of making dangerous contact to the eyes of Adam Pompey.

Following the verdict, which arrived after a 100-minute hearing, the judiciary is still yet to determine the length of the ban Young will have to serve, with the NRL counsel suggesting a penalty range between 10 and 12 games.

The 21-year-old was referred straight to the judiciary on a grade three dangerous contact charge after appearing to make contact with the NZ Warriors winger's eyes.

Represented by super-lawyer Nick Ghabar, Young's defence pointed to the "innocuous nature" of his actions and added that there was no mention of the incident in the referees' report.

In the marathon hearing on Tuesday night, Young called on Pompey via video link to give evidence as the Warriors player also denied feeling any contact with his eyes.

But the three-man panel disregarded that evidence, finding the Raider guilty before a second hearing to determine his ban.
