Mat Rogers facing three-week NRL ban
Gold Coast five-eighth Mat Rogers is facing three weeks' suspension after being hit with a grade two dangerous throw charge by the NRL match review committee.
Rogers can accept a three game ban with an early guilty plea for the 31st minute tackle on Parramatta's Luke Burt last Friday.
But if he decides to fight the charge he risks being outed for four games.
The loss of Rogers is a huge blow to the Titans ahead of Friday's top of the table blockbuster with local rivals Brisbane.
While Jones can escape a ban with an early guilty plea, Thurling faces a two game suspension due to his prior similar offence and carryover points regardless of his plea.
