Seven players were charged with a range of offences in Round 22 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.
Of the seven, only one - Brisbane utility Joe Ofahengaue - will face suspension. The Bronco will miss three matches and return in Round 26 after a Grade 3 Dangerous Throw on Titans' interchange player Max King in Saturday's 54-0 win at Cbus Super Stadium.
Two players will be out of pocket from the weekend's clash, Ofahengaue's teammate James Roberts fined $1,650 for a Grade 1 Contrary Conduct charge on Ryan James just after halftime. Newcastle's Chanel Mata'utia loses $1,100 from his wallet for a 63rd minute Grade 1 Trip on Warriors' half Mason Lino.
Players escaping suspension and fine with their early pleas are the Dragons' Jake Marketo (Grade 1 Dangerous Contact - head/neck); Kane Linnett from the Cowboys (same charge); Cronulla's Wade Graham (Grade 1 Dangerous Throw); and Tiger Matt McIlwrick (same charge).
No player will contest their charges with all entering the early guilty plea.
