Knights face
anxious wait

The Newcastle Knights will find out today whether captain Andrew Johns and prop Josh Perry have been charged by the National Rugby League.

Johns was placed on report for a head slam on Wests centre Mark O'Halloran in the 36th minute of last night's match at EnergyAustralia Stadium while Perry was placed on report after Wests centre Terry Hill alleged he was eye gouged. Any suspension to Johns will hamper his efforts for a 4th Dally M Award, with three points deducted for every week suspended from the game.

Hill was also placed on report for a lifting tackle while Wests' winger Robbie Beckett joined him after a late hit on Robbie O'Davis.
