Sims takes early plea as Lima makes his decision

RABBITOHS prop Jeff Lima is likely to miss Friday's clash with the Bulldogs after being slapped with a grade two dangerous contact charge.

Lima, who attracted widespread criticism for 'pulling and twisting' at the leg of Manly back-rower Anthony Watmough last Friday night, can take a one-match ban with an early guilty plea.

Cowboys prop Ashton Sims will also miss a week with an early plea to a careless high tackle charge on Gold Coast's Ryan James.
