Manly's celebrations of its come-from-behind win over the Wests Tigers have been tempered today with halfback Jason Ferris one of three players charged by the National Rugby League judiciary.
Ferris has been charged with a grade one offence following a fifth minute tackle on the Tigers' Robert Miles during the Sea Eagles' 38-30 win at Leichhardt Oval yesterday. The 26-year-old could be suspended for two weeks if he contests the charge and loses at the judiciary and one week if he enters an early guilty plea.
Melbourne forward Mitchell Sargent has also been charged with a grade one dangerous throw by the judiciary following a third minute tackle on South Sydney centre Russell Richardson at Aussie Stadium yesterday.
Sydney Roosters utility Michael Crocker has been the other players charged today - with a grade one careless high tackle. Crocker, who was unlucky to miss out on the Queensland State of Origin squad for Wednesday night's game at Suncorp Stadium, could be suspended for one week if he fights the charge and loses.
