Hindmarsh charged for lifting tackle

Parramatta back-rower Nathan Hindmarsh has been charged with a grade one dangerous throw charge by the NRL judiciary but can escape suspension with an early guilty plea.

Hindmarsh was charged for a 76th minute tackle during the Eels' 46-12 win over Newcastle on Saturday night but will only be suspended if he unsuccessfully contests the charge.

The only other player to be charged during round 18 was South Sydney prop Scott Geddes. He must beat a grade two careless high tackle charge in order to play in Saturday night's Telstra Stadium clash with Manly.
