Manly forward just one of many cited for further examination at the judicary.
The Manly Sea Eagles could be without forward Richie Fa’aoso for up to 10 weeks, after he was hit with serious gradings for his two spear tackles on Souths’ Greg Inglis.
Fa’aoso’s case is not helped given he has a history at the judiciary, and the club’s problems were further compounded when he was given a grade two and three respectively for his latest indiscretions.
The veteran forward has already been stood down earlier in the year for a shoulder charge on the Gold Coast’s Ashley Harrison.
Manly also look set to miss Steve Matai for their next game, after he was slapped with a grade one careless high tackles on George Burgess.
At the time of the tackle, Matai pleaded his innocence for the hit, saying his arms slipped up off the ball and hit Burgess high.
But on the back of his extensive rap-sheet with the judiciary, Manly are unlikely to fight the charge or risk a longer suspension for the New Zealand centre.
Finally, Manly fullback Brett Stewart can escape punishment after being given a grade one dangerous contact charge after the rep star elbowed Rabbtiohs’ winger Andrew Everingham in the head.
In other charge news from the weekend, Newcastle prop Kade Snowden should be right to play this weekend after only getting a grade two careless high tackle, with a likely early guilty plea seeing him available for selection.
