Latrell charged: Star centre set to miss prelim

LATRELL Mitchell won't play again until the grand final unless he fights a crusher tackle charge and wins at the judiciary.

The Roosters centre was on Sunday charged with dangerous contact for his 42nd minute tackle on Josh Dugan in Saturday's win over the Sharks.

While the base penalty is not enough to warrant suspension, with carryover points added, he will need to contest the charge at the NRL judiciary to play in the Roosters' preliminary final.
