    Manly prop Addin Fonua-Blake faces a two-week suspension after being charged for two separate dangerous contact offences in his side's loss to Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday.

    The Sea Eagles' big man was charged for an eighth-minute challenge of a Benji Marshall kick and for a 36th-minute incident involving Wests Tigers prop Russell Packer.

    Fonua-Blake will miss just one match if he pleads guilty to both charges. He will miss two games if he challenges the charges and loses.

    In the other incident to attract the attention of the judiciary in that match, Manly forward Joel Thompson has been fined following a tripping offence on Corey Thompson in the 52nd minute.

    If Thompson accepts the early guilty plea his fine will be $1350. If he challenges the penalty and loses the fine will be $1800.

    There were no charges in the Warriors-Bulldogs and Cowboys-Dragons matches.

    Mon 25 Mar 2019, 12:31 PM



    Warriors prop Sam Lisone is facing a two-week suspension over a dangerous contact charge from Sunday's clash with the Wests Tigers.

    Lisone was charged with making dangerous contact with the head or neck of Tigers forward Thomas Mikaele, and with two prior similar offences and one non-similar offence in the past two years, plus 72 carry-over points to his name, he is set to miss the next two rounds with a guilty plea or if found guilty at the judiciary.

    Knight was hit with a grade two charge over a 28th-minute tackle on St George Illawarra prop James Graham.

    Rabbitoh Knight and Warrior Lisone both cop two matches


    NRL.com
    Tue 26 Mar 2019, 08:59 PM



    Rabbitoh Liam Knight and Warrior Sam Lisone have both been found guilty at the judiciary on Tuesday night and will each miss two matches.

    Knight was hit with a grade two charge over a 28th-minute tackle on St George Illawarra prop James Graham but disputed the grading.

    Had he pleaded guilty to the charge he would have missed just one match and a successful downgrade would have seen him escape a suspension.

    Knight will now miss the Bunnies' games against Gold Coast and Manly.

    Lisone was found guilty of dangerous contact grade one on the head or neck of Tigers forward Thomas Mikaele in last Sunday's game at Campbelltown.

    With two prior similar offences and one non-similar offence in the past two years, plus 72 carry-over points to his name, Lisone was going to miss two rounds with a guilty plea or if found guilty at the judiciary.

    Lisone will now miss the Warriors' clashes with Manly and the Gold Coast Titans.

    Tevita Pangai jnr is facing a suspension of two or three weeks after he was charged with dangerous contact for his controversial tackle on Cooper Cronk on Thursday night.

    The Brisbane forward drew the ire of the Roosters team and fans alike after he tackled Cronk late after a pass in the 17th minute.

    Pangai was charged with grade-two dangerous contact. If he submits an early guilty plea he will miss two matches but if he unsuccessfully contests the charge at the judiciary, he will receive a three-game suspension.

    Cronk laughed off the late hit that put Pangai on report. It also sparked debate on whether the sin bin should be used in such cases.

    Pangai's shot in the back was described by Channel 9 commentator and eighth Immortal Andrew Johns as a "dog shot".

    "It's part of the job description, as part of your role as a ball player you've got to go into the line and create some space for the outside players," Cronk said.

    "The officials will take care of all that stuff. As long as I keep getting up and standing I'll keep doing my job.

    "I'd prefer not to [be hit late] but sometimes it's part of football. Sometimes they do it so halves don't go into the line and create space but I'll keep doing that for my team as long as guys can take advantage of it."

    Asked about the trend of forward looking to intimidate halves with shots that can err on the side of late and dangerous, Cronk – stressing he was speaking in general terms rather than the Pangai incident – said "If it's late, high, aggressive contact then wipe it out of the game completely."

    In terms of that incident specifically he added: "If you want to talk about the individual one, there's a question mark whether it could maybe have been 10 in the bin... I trust the officials to do the right job, and I think it was put on report, they'll judge that accordingly."

    Melbourne winger Suliasi Vunivalu has been hit with a grade two dangerous contact charge for a leg pull on Bulldogs fullback Nick Meaney in Sunday's game at AAMI Park.

    The incident took place in the 10th minute of the Storm's 18-16 win and will result in a one-match ban if Vunivalu takes an early guilty plea or two weeks if he fights the charge and is found guilty at the judiciary.

    Bulldogs winger Ofahiki Ogden was charged with dangerous contact to the head/neck on Will Chambers in the same game but will not miss a game if he takes an early guilty plea.

    Manly back-rower Joel Thompson has been charged for tripping for a second time in four weeks and will be fined $1,900 if he enters an early plea.

    In round one he was fined $1,350 for tripping Tigers winger Corey Thompson during the 20-6 loss at Leichhardt Oval.

    In Friday night action, Warriors hooker Jazz Tevaga and Titans prop Moeaki Fotuaiki are facing one-week suspensions after being charged with dangerous contact offences.

    Tevaga is facing a one-match ban due to the loading resulting from a prior similar offence unless he beats the charge at the judiciary.

    The 60 carry-over points Fotuaiki has against his name means he faces a one-week suspension unless he is successful at the judiciary.

    Panthers forward Isaah Yeo has been hit with a grade one dangerous contact charge after being placed on report for a crusher tackle in Friday night's 9-8 golden point victory over the Wests Tigers.

    Yeo was charged with dangerous contact to the head or neck in relation to the 50th-minute tackle on Tigers backrower Luke Garner.

    Yeo will not miss any games with an early guilty plea. The 24-year-old has the benefit of a clean judiciary record over the last two years.

    Meanwhile, Brisbane's Tevita Pangai has accepted a suspension of two weeks after he was charged with dangerous contact for his controversial tackle on Cooper Cronk on Thursday night.

    NRL.com
    Sat 27 Apr 2019, 11:03 AM



    Penrith hooker Sione Katoa is facing a dangerous contact charge relating to his late-game clash with Dane Gagai in Friday night's 22-18 loss to the Rabbitohs.

    Katoa's knees appeared to come into contact with Gagai after he scored a crucial try for the Bunnies in the 73rd minute.

    No penalty was given after the bunker reviewed the incident, but the NRL Match Review Committee deemed Katoa's contact illegal.

    The 24-year-old is free to play in Penrith's Saturday afternoon road meeting with the Raiders if he takes an early plea.

    Penrith need all hands on deck after dropping to 2-5 with the loss to the Rabbitohs.

    There were no other charges stemming from Friday night's matches.
