In what seems to be a recurring pattern, firebrand Rooster Adrian Morley and Parramatta forward Adam Peek are facing potentially lengthy suspensions after being charged by the National Rugby League following incidents at the weekend.
Pommie Test prop Morley will miss 3-4 weeks if he's found guilty of a grade two careless tackle charge for his late hit on Cronulla halfback Brett Kimmorley during his club's win at Toyota Park on Saturday night.
The news is worse for the well-travelled Peek from Parramatta. He could miss 6-9 weeks if convicted of a dangerous throw on Melbourne forward Steve Kearney at Parramatta Stadium yesterday.
The others charged by the NRL citings commissioner today are:
NZ Warriors prop Jerry Seuseu (grade one careless high tackle) Melbourne's Ben MacDougall (dangerous throw) Parramatta's Craig Stapleton (grade two careless high tackle) Newcastle's John Perry (grade two careless high tackle).
