Parramatta crowd favourite Fui Fui Moi Moi and North Queensland's Origin prop Carl Webb will miss the entire NRL finals series unless they can successfully contest charges laid by the NRL match review committee today.
Webb will cop a four match ban if he enters an early guilty plea to a grade four striking charge following his punch to the head of Melbourne back-rower Ryan Hoffman on Saturday night in Townsville.
Moi Moi is facing a six-game suspension if he submits an early guilty plea to a grade two reckless high tackle charge. Moi Moi's hit on Berrick Barnes left the Brisbane teenager heavily concussed on Friday night at Parramatta Stadium. It's a bitter blow for the Eels, whose star forward Nathan Hindmarsh tore the posterior cruciate in his right leg in the win over the Broncos and may also miss the entire NRL finals series.
If Moi Moi and Webb decide to fight their charges and are unsuccessful, they will be suspended for nine and six games respectively.
