Magpies' pair face six match suspension

BELLINGEN'S Josh White and Cameron Blair are both looking down the barrel of lengthy suspensions.

The pair has been cited by referee Jason Townley for abuse of a touch judge during the Magpies' 38-34 loss to Macleay Valley on Sunday.

White and Blair are facing Category three charges which carry a six-week penalty if they elect to fight the charge and are found guilty.

An early guilty plea can reduce the length of the suspension.

White announced his retirement from football earlier this week after failing to overcome a neck injury sustained four weeks ago.

Written evidence from both Townley and touch judge Harry Bell alleges that both White and Blair swore at Bell and called him a cheat after two disallowed tries in the dying minutes of the match.
