Sonny Bill out till round five after shoulder charge

SYDNEY Roosters star Sonny Bill Williams will be a spectator until round five after making an early guilty plea to a grade two shoulder charge on Rabbitohs prop Sam Burgess in the season opener.

Roosters fullback Anthony Minichiello (dangerous contact, knees), and South Sydney five-eighth Dylan Walker (tripping) will be free to play this weekend after also making early guilty pleas.

Parramatta back-rower Peni Terepo will also be available if he pleads guilty to a grade one careless high tackle charge on Warriors centre Carlos Tuimavave.
