Miriam Vale players charged
THE aftermath of the wild all-in brawl in the preliminary-final of the Northern Districts Rugby League will impact this weekend's grand final.
With four Miriam Vale and five Avondale players charged after the match, the judiciary will be kept busy this week.
For Miriam Vale, three players have entered an early guilty plea and will face the Sharks in this week's decider but punishment for the player who has decided to contest his charge won't be known until Thursday.
There is still no word if Avondale will fight the charges
