    Round 10 charges: Maloney, Granville, Paasi facing bans


    NRL.com
    Sun 19 May 2019, 12:51 PM



    Origin hopefuls James Maloney and Jake Granville are each facing a week on the sidelines if they cannot beat dangerous contact charges.

    Granville was charged by the match review committee on Sunday over a third-minute incident involving Mitchell Moses during North Queensland's win over Parramatta.

    He could have been free to play with an early guilty plea but has 25 carryover points.

    Granville is hoping to make the Queensland squad for Origin I with incumbent rake Andrew McCullough unlikely to be fit due to injury.

    Moses was also charged for grade-one dangerous contact for a 41st-minute incident involving John Asiata but can escape suspension if he doesn't contest the verdict.

    Penrith might have to make do without Maloney for next week's meeting with Parramatta after the experienced playmaker was charged with dangerous contact in Friday night's 30-10 home loss to the Warriors.

    The 100-point base penalty will be trimmed to 90 if Maloney takes an early plea, but his 70 carry-over points would rule him out of the round 11 Thursday night clash with the Eels.

    Maloney was cleared of a dangerous contact charge in round eight after a judiciary hearing.

    Warriors prop Agnatius Paasi is also facing a one-game suspension after being charged for a dangerous throw on Panthers winger Brian To'o.

    An early plea would result in a 90-point penalty and one-match ban when Paasi's 30 carry-over points are added on.

    The Warriors have won their past two games and host the Broncos next Saturday.

    Round 10: Granville to fight charge; Maloney accepts ban


    NRL.com
    Mon 20 May 2019, 02:10 PM


    Cowboys hooker Jake Granville will head to the judiciary on Tuesday night in a bid to beat a dangerous contact charge so he can push his case for Origin selection against the Canberra Raiders on Saturday.

    Granville was charged by the match review committee for attacking the legs of Eels No.7 Mitchell Moses in the third minute of Saturday's clash in Townsville and faces a week out with carryover points unless he is found not guilty at the judiciary.

    The 30-year-old is hoping to make his Queensland debut in Origin I with incumbent rake Andrew McCullough sidelined by a knee injury.

    James Maloney's Origin hopes appear all but gone after Penrith announced he had accepted a one-game ban for a dangerous contact charge, putting him out of his club's trip to Parramatta on Thursday night.

    He now will not play again before teams are picked for the Holden State of Origin series opener.

    Maloney was cleared of a dangerous contact charge in round eight after a judiciary hearing.

    Warriors prop Agnatius Paasi will miss the round 11 clash with the Broncos after taking an early guilty plea for a dangerous throw on Panthers winger Brian To'o.

    Mitchell Moses was also charged for grade-one dangerous contact for a 41st-minute incident involving John Asiata but escaped suspension with an early guilty plea.

    Round 12 charges: Young faces seven-match ban for dangerous contact


    NRL.com
    Sun 2 Jun 2019, 11:23 AM



    Raiders forward Hudson Young is facing a seven-match ban after being charged by the NRL match review committee over an incident in Saturday night's win over Canterbury at ANZ Stadium.

    Young was charged with grade-three dangerous contact - head/neck (eye contact) from an incident involving Bulldogs prop Aiden Tolman in the 34th minute of Canberra's 12-10 win.

    He will receive a five-game ban if he submits an early guilty plea but could miss seven matches if he challenges the charge unsuccessfully at the judiciary due to a prior similar offence in the past two years.

    Young was placed on report by referee Grant Atkins during the game. Footage showed his hand applying pressure to Tolman's face after the Canterbury veteran was tackled.

    When asked about the incident, Raiders coach Ricky Stuart in the post-match media conference said: "I haven't seen it again. I asked Hudson what it was and he put his hands on his face, didn't he?"

    The Raiders on Sunday said they would review the charge and make a plea on Monday.

    Meanwhile, Manly young gun Corey Waddell is facing a three-match ban after being charged by the NRL match review committee over an incident in Thursday night's loss to Penrith at Panthers Stadium.

    The rookie forward has been handed a grade-one striking offence for a 30th-minute incident involving Panthers rival Liam Martin.

    Waddell will receive a two-match ban if he submits an early guilty plea but faces an extra game on the sidelines if he unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the judiciary due to a prior similar offence within the last two years.

    Penrith's Tyrell Fuimaono was also charged with a grade-one careless high tackle on Curtis Sironen and is facing a fine of $1150-$1500.

    Round 13 charges: Hipgrave, Satae, Burgess facing bans


    NRL.com
    Mon 10 Jun 2019, 12:17 PM



    Titans forward Keegan Hipgrave is facing a two-week suspension after he was charged on Monday for an incident in the win over Brisbane.

    Hipgrave was found to have committed a grade-one shoulder charge by the match review committee for an incident in the 29th minute of the Suncorp Stadium clash on Sunday.

    He can receive a one-match ban if he submits an early guilty plea for the hit on Broncos rookie Thomas Flegler but will miss two games if he unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the judiciary.

    Warriors forward Chris Satae faces a ban for dangerous contact on Storm winger Josh Addo-Carr while Josh McGuire and Jorge Taufua each face a fine over incidents through Saturday's NRL games.

    Rabbitohs prop Tom Burgess was also charged with striking while two others have been fined over the brawl that engulfed players from both the Rabbitohs and Knights in the shadow of half-time on Friday night at ANZ Stadium.

    The NRL match review committee has set a grade one striking charge against Burgess, with a base penalty of 200 points. It means he will miss only one match with an early plea, or two games if he appeals.

    But the Rabbitohs announced on their website on Saturday morning that Burgess had scans on his ankle which revealed some floating cartilage. The injury will most likely require surgery and he is booked in to see a specialist on Tuesday.

    His older brother Sam Burgess underwent surgery on Saturday morning for a clean-up of his shoulder. He will need about five weeks to recover.

    Sam has been fined $1,350 for contrary conduct out of the Knights game, if he enters an early plea. If he doesn't the fine rises by $450.

    Knights prop Daniel Saifiti was also fined for contrary conduct, but the lesser amount of $1,150 with an early plea.

    The fourth player sin-binned, Knights back rower Lachlan Fitzgibbon, escaped any penalty.

    It amazes me the complete cluelesness of the yellow shirted geese.

    Two weeks ago JWH flattens Ponga high and late, Cummins does not even see a penalty in it, JWH gets two weeks. Tom Burgess head butts Daniel, South gets the penalty that only Atkins could give, and then Tom looks like getting two weeks also.

    Round 14 charges: Fifita suspended for three games; Blair, Sue not guilty


    NRL.com
    Tue 18 Jun 2019, 09:48 PM



    Cronulla forward Andrew Fifita has been unsuccessful in his bid to have a grade two dangerous contact charge downgraded and has received a three-match ban, ruling him out of Saturday's Test between Tonga and New Zealand.

    Fifita was selected in the Tongan squad but will miss the Test in Auckland plus Cronulla's next two clashes against the Bulldogs and Broncos after a three-man judiciary panel deemed there was sufficient evidence of foul play against the 29-year-old in his tackle attempt on Canberra's Ryan Sutton in the eighth minute of last weekend's clash.

    Fifita's legal team, led by defence lawyer Nick Ghabar, pleaded guilty to the initial charge in the 90-minute hearing but gave evidence of five cases similar to either grade one or two crusher tackles over the past four seasons that suggested Fifita's case deserved a downgrade.

    NRL counsel representative Anthony Lo Surda argued Fifita had time to pull out of the tackle made by Sharks hooker Blayke Brailey, and the panel later agreed the charge warranted in excess of a base points penalty.

    Also appearing at the judiciary on Tuesday were Warriors forward Adam Blair and Bulldogs back-rower Sauaso Sue.

    Blair was found not guilty of a grade one dangerous contact charge and is free to line up against Penrith in round 15 at Mt Smart Stadium.

    The charge related to an incident involving Titans five-eighth Tyrone Roberts in last Friday's clash on the Gold Coast and occurred in the 80th minute of the Warriors' 24-20 win.

    Blair and his team successfully argued that the Warriors enforcer struck Roberts in a legal manner and did not follow on with the tackle once initial contact was made.

    Sue was also found not guilty after challenging a grade one dangerous contact charge on Roosters halfback Cooper Cronk.

    Sue was facing a two-match ban but is available for selection for the Dogs' round 15 home game against the Sharks.

    "I'm very relieved, I didn't think what I did was against the rules so I was confident," Sue told NRL.com after the hearing.

    "I thought he still had the ball when I made contact so I didn't think anything of it at the time. It's footy and some things just happen but definitely pleased with the result."

    Meanwhile, Newcastle Knights back-rower Mitchell Barnett has accepted a three-week ban over a crusher tackle.

    Barnett - who was facing a five-game suspension if he challenged the grade three dangerous contact charge and lost - will miss matches against Brisbane, the Warriors and Bulldogs. He will also have 75 carry-over points.

    Barnett was given a grade three charge for dangerous contact to the head/neck of Storm fullback Jahrome Hughes in the 35th minute of Saturday's game at AAMI Park.

    George Burgess referred straight to judiciary


    Brad Walter NRL.com Senior Reporter
    Fri 28 Jun 2019, 10:35 AM



    South Sydney prop George Burgess faces at least 10 matches on the sideline if found guilty of an alleged eye-gouge on Wests Tigers hooker Robbie Farah in Thursday night's clash at Bankwest Stadium.

    Burgess has been referred to the judiciary without a grading on a dangerous contact charge (eye contact) and has 50 per cent loading from a previous eye-gouge ban over an incident involving New Zealand captain Dallin Watene-Zelezniak in England at the end of the last season.

    With the base penalty for grade 3 dangerous contact being 500 demerit points, which equates to a five-match suspension, Burgess is facing a longer ban as the match review committee considers the incident to be of a higher grading than detailed in the NRL judiciary code.

    As each grade is scaled up by 200 demerit points for dangerous contact charges, the base penalty for a grade 4 offence would be 700 demerit points and any penalty imposed on Burgess would include a 50 per cent loading for the incident in last year's Test which cost him a four-match ban.

    The judiciary is free to determine a different grade to what the match review committee has recommended.

    The England forward missed the third Test of the series against the Kiwis and the first three rounds of this year's Telstra Premiership.

    It is understood Burgess apologised to Farah, a former Souths team-mate, immediately after the match on Thursday night, won 14-9 by the Tigers.

    However, the match review committee considered it be more serious than the 2019 eye-gouge by Canberra forward Hudson Young on Canterbury prop Aiden Tolman, which resulted in a five-match suspension.

    NRL.com has seen unreleased footage of the Young incident, which shows him digging his thumb into Tolman's eye, and the Raiders rookie pleaded guilty to a grade three dangerous contact charge and accepted a five-match ban after loading and carry-overs from previous offences were added.

    Young would have been suspended for seven matches but he received a 25 per cent discount for an early plea – an option which will not be available to Burgess as his case has been referred directly to the tribunal.

    Cowboys lock Josh McGuire has twice this season been fined for grade one contrary conduct after putting his hand in the face of opponents but there was insufficient video evidence to suggest either incident was an eye-gouge and warranted a more serious charge of dangerous contact.

    The charge against Burgess follows signalling by the NRL this week of a tougher stance on incidents of foul play by referees and the match review committee.

    The ARL Commission approved recommendations by the NRL Competition Committee for crusher tackles which are deemed reckless or intentional to be directly referred to the judiciary by the match review committee, without a grading.

    In addition, players can be sin-binned or sent off for serious crusher tackles from round 15, which began on Thursday night.

    The match review committee was also instructed to apply a higher grading for more serious late tackles – those deemed to be forceful and unnecessary – without being restricted by precedent

    Round 15 charges: Sims facing ban over tackle on Morgan


    Brad Walter NRL.com Senior Reporter
    Sat 29 Jun 2019, 11:14 AM



    St George Illawarra forward Tariq Sims could be forced out of the State of Origin decider after being charged with dangerous contact.

    The NSW Blues backrower is facing a two-match ban after the Match Review Committee charged him with dangerous contact to the head/neck of Cowboys playmaker Michael Morgan.

    Morgan left the field for an HIA after the 45th-minute tackle in Friday night's game at WIN Stadium and did not return.

    The Dragons trailed 10-6 at the time and came back to win 22-14.

    Sims has the option of challenging the charge at a judiciary hearing but risks a three-match suspension if found guilty.

    The Dragons host the Storm at WIN Stadium in round 17 on July 4, while the Origin decider is scheduled for July 10 at ANZ Stadium.

    Melbourne prop Jesse Bromwich was also charged with dangerous contact to the head/neck in relation to an incident involving Roosters prop Siosiua Taukeiaho in the 15th minute of the Storm's 14-12 win on Friday night in Adelaide.

    Bromwich will avoid suspension if he takes an early plea.

    Round 16 charges: Flanagan can avoid ban; Tetevano facing suspension


    NRL.com
    Mon 8 Jul 2019, 11:52 AM



    Cronulla rookie Kyle Flanagan can avoid suspension if he pleads guilty to a dangerous contact charge.

    The 20-year-old was charged by the NRL Match Review Committee after a 58th-minute incident involving Brisbane prop Matt Lodge.

    An early guilty plea would leave Flanagan with 75 carry-over points. If he challenges the charge at the judiciary and loses, he will miss one match.

    A two-game suspension looms for Roosters prop Zane Tetevano after he was slapped with a grade 2 dangerous contact charge charged.

    Tetevano's charge relates to an 11th-minute incident involving Tigers halfback Luke Brooks.

    He will be banned for two matches if he takes an early plea or risks a three-game suspension if he challenges the charge and is found guilty.

    Tigers prop Josh Aloiai was also charged for a 55th-minute incident involving Roosters halfback Cooper Cronk.

    Aloiai will avoid a one-game suspension if he takes an early plea.

    And what about that 'terrible crusher' that got the Worriers their last penalty and try?

    Badger would not know if his nuts were in a crusher! Crap penalty.

    Round 18 charges: Fifita, Flegler accept bans; Kikau headed to judiciary


    NRL.com
    Mon 22 Jul 2019, 12:33 PM



    Sharks prop Andrew Fifita and Brisbane forward Thomas Flegler have accepted one-week suspensions stemming from Round 18.

    Fifita will also have 80 carry-over points when he returns from the ban incurred for his shoulder charge on Warriors forward Lachlan Burr on Friday.

    Flegler will also miss one match - but have just 12 carry-over points - from a dangerous contact charge for a tackle on Marcelo Montoya.

    Broncos centre Kotoni Staggs will avoid suspension after pleading guilty to a grade one dangerous contact charge. He will have 75 carry-over points against his name.

    In other judiciary news, Storm winger Suliasi Vunivalu is facing a one-game ban for an incident involving Titans speedster Phillip Sami on Sunday.

    Vunivalu tackled Sami as he leapt high to defuse a bomb in the 41st minute before he had returned to the ground.

    Due to a prior similar offence in the past two years, Vunivalu is facing a week on the sidelines even if he submits an early guilty plea for the grade-one offence.

    Titans centre Brenko Lee and Storm forward Joe Stimson were also handed grade-one dangerous contact charges over incidents in the second half of the same game, won comfortably by Melbourne.

    They can each escape suspension and will be docked 75 demerit points if they enter early guilty pleas.

    Meanwhile, Penrith back-rower Viliame Kikau will head to the NRL judiciary on Tuesday night in an attempt to avoid suspension.

    Kikau was charged with a shoulder charge on Dragons halfback Darren Nicholls in Penrith's 40-18 win. The Panthers announced the challenge on Twitter on Monday.

    If he fails in his bid to beat the charge he will incur a two-match suspension.

    Round 20 charges: Maloney off to judiciary; Sam Burgess facing two weeks


    NRL.com
    Mon 5 Aug 2019, 11:34 AM



    Panthers five-eighth James Maloney will go to the NRL judiciary on Tuesday night in an attempt to avoid suspension over a tripping charge.

    The NSW Origin hero will miss one match if he is unsuccessful at the judiciary - the same penalty he would have incurred with an early guilty plea. The Panthers announced the news via Twitter on Monday.

    The incident in question came when Maloney made contact with Canterbury's Jeremy Marshall-King in the 73rd-minute of the match at Bankwest Stadium on Saturday night.

    South Sydney veteran Sam Burgess has been charged with a grade two careless high tackle following the Rabbitohs' 39-25 loss to the Sharks on Saturday night.

    Burgess is facing a two-game suspension, or one with an early plea, over his tackle on Matt Moylan in the fourth minute of his comeback match from injury.

    Melbourne prop Nelson Asofa-Solomona is facing a dangerous contact charge following Friday night's 40-4 demolition of Brisbane.

    Asofa-Solomona has been charged with dangerous contact to the neck/head of Broncos forward Patrick Carrigan after an incident in the 55th minute of the round 20 match at Suncorp Stadium.

    He will be free to play against the Rabbitohs in round 21 if he takes an early plea but risks a one-match suspension if he challenges the charge at the judiciary and is found guilty.

    Eels back-rower Manu Ma'u is facing a fine after being charged with a grade 1 careless high tackle. The fine will be $1150 if he makes an early guilty plea.

    Every other player this year guilty of tripping copped a $1100.00 fine, Joel Thjompson twice.

    Why treat Maloney different? If he gave the ref a gobfull at half time, charge him with that not a BS tripping charge everyone gets fined over.,

    Round 22 charges: Tevaga, Tapine, Munster pinged; Pangai challenging; Turpin banned


    NRL.com
    Mon 19 Aug 2019, 11:32 AM



    The Warriors, Raiders and Storm will be breathing sighs of relief with Jazz Tevaga, Joe Tapine and Cameron Munster free to play next weekend despite being charged by the match review committee.

    Raiders prop Tapine will pay a $1150 fine with an early plea to a contrary conduct charge after his spat with Storm opposite Nelson Asofa-Solomona midway through the first half of Canberra's 22-18 win at AAMI Park on Saturday night.

    That will be pleasing for Raiders coach Ricky Stuart as he prepares his men to play the Sea Eagles talented forward pack at GIO Stadium next Sunday.

    Munster attracted a grade one dangerous contact charge for his 63rd-minute tackle on Sia Soliola but is free to play the Titans in round 23 with an early guilty plea.

    Tevaga can escape suspension with an early guilty plea after attracting a grade one charge for dangerous contact following an incident involving Cooper Cronk at the SCG on Sunday.

    Bulldogs prop Aiden Tolman will also be available to take on the Eels on Thursday at Bankwest Stadium with an early plea to a dangerous contact charge against Rabbitohs lock Cameron Murray in the 14-6 win over South Sydney on Saturday.

    The Broncos have decided to fight the dangerous contact to the head/neck charge against Tevita Pangai after his tackle on James Maloney in the 24-12 win over the Panthers on Friday night.

    Pangai could miss five matches due to carryover points from previous offences, but the club announced on Sunday it would seek a down-grading.

    "If the Broncos can successfully lower the grading of the charge, Pangai could reduce his suspension from four matches down to just one game," the statement said.

    Meantime, the Broncos have accepted a grade two dangerous contact charge against Jake Turpin, which will see the No.7 miss two games.

    Turpin was charged for a hit on Panthers fullback Dylan Edwards.

    The Broncos host the Rabbitohs in Round 23 before finishing the regular season with games against Parramatta (home) and the Bulldogs (away).

    Eels centre Michael Jennings and Brisbane fullback Anthony Milford were both charged with tripping.

    Jennings and Milford face fines of $1350 and $1150 respectively if they take early guilty pleas.

    Wests Tigers halfback Luke Brooks has been charged with contrary contact over an incident involving Jack Gosiewski at Lottoland on Thursday night but will be available to face the Knights next round.

    Brooks appeared to drop his knee into the face of Sea Eagles forward Gosiewski but the grade one charge means he pays a fine instead of missing game time.

    An early plea will see Brooks pay $1350 while he will be handing over $1800 if he goes to the judiciary and is found guilty.
