Comets? Penaia beats contrary conduct charge



CENTRAL Comets foward enforcer Peter Penaia has fought the law and won.

Penaia is free to play in tomorrow night's round four Queens- land Wizard Cup clash against Wynnum Manly at Rockhampton's Browne Park after beating a grade three contrary conduct charge at the judiciary yesterday.

The controversial prop was facing a four-week stint on the sidelines if found guilty of lifting his knees into a tackle during last week's 38-30 loss to Redcliffe.

After a much-publicised couple of weeks, it was good news for Penaia and also the Comets ? the club's first victory at the tribunal. The Seagulls yesterday included former Comet Fili Sofa in their front-row.

Sofa was released by the Comets at the end of last season. Meanwhile, newly appointed Comets chief executive John Quinn has signed an 18-month contract with the club.

A Comets media release sent out on Wednesday stated Quinn would be in the role for the next three years. The club yesterday apologised for the mix-up.
