Titans forward Ryan James and Sea Eagles forward Jack Gosiewski were both charged by the NRL's match review committee from Sunday's clash in Gladstone.
James is facing a one-match ban if he enters an early guilty plea for a dangerous contact charge but risks a two-match suspension if he unsuccessfully fights the charge, while Gosiewski is facing a fine for a careless high tackle.
Ryan James has entered a guilty plea for his dangerous contact charge and will miss this weekend's clash with Penrith
Josh Jackson to face the judiciary tonight in a bid to have a grade two dangerous contact charge downgraded
Joe Tapine charged with tripping, He will cop a $1,100 fine with an early plea
Judiciary results: Sims, Prior, Tapine plead guilty
Mon 16 Apr 2018, 12:04 PM
Sharks prop Matt Prior and Raiders forward Joseph Tapine have both received fines over grade one charges from round six matches, while Dragons forward Tariq Sims is also free to play this week after entering a guilty plea.
Prior has been fined $1350 over a grade one careless high tackle on Dragons prop James Graham, and Tapine has been fined $1100 for tripping Eels forward Kenny Edwards.
Sims will have 90 carryover points to his named after being charged with making dangerous contact to the head or neck of Sharks halfback Chad Townsend.
Tripping deserves a much harsher penalty then a poultry $1100 fine.
Should be an automatic send off if spotted by the refs. If not then at least an automatic week. Such a **** act to do.
I can't believe you can be guilty of trip or high tackle and not get at least a week suspension.
Be interesting to know who actually pays the fine, if you are on $400k a year, over 52 weeks that's about $8k a week so a fine of less than $2k still leaves a bit to spend, in other words the more you earn the more you can afford to plead guilty and pay.
Trippers are grubs and in the good ole days would have got three weeks and a decent smack in the mouth!
Burgess could miss three matches for Sezer hit

South Sydney forward Sam Burgess faces up to three matches on the sidelines if he is unable to clear himself of a careless high tackle charge.
The NRL match review committee on Sunday issued a grade two charge against the Rabbitohs lock for his 59th minute hit on Canberra halfback Aidan Sezer in Saturday's 42-22 win at Gosford.
That means he will miss two weekends, if he accepts the charge. If he fights it and loses, it will be three matches out because of carry-over points and loading from similar offences over the past two years.
Sunday's charge is Burgess' seventh in three seasons. That list includes a shoulder charge in April last year, where the 29-year-old was found not guilty at the judiciary.
His younger brother George Burgess also attracted the match review committee's attention with a careless high tackle charge for his 71st minute hit on Raiders forward Luke Bateman, but will not miss any games.
George has been issued with a $1,550 fine for an early plea, but that rises to $2,100 if he unsuccessfully appeals because he has two non-similar charges in the past two seasons.
A third charge came out of the fiery round six match at Central Coast Stadium with second rower Elliott Whitehead landing a dangerous contact charge for hitting Tom Burgess from behind.
But Whitehead will be free to play the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville on Saturday night with an early plea.
