Canberra's great start to the 2003 National Rugby League season could be tarnished with key forward Ruben Wiki landing in trouble with the judiciary.
Wiki has been charged with a grade three careless high tackle on Penrith prop Joel Clinton and could be suspended for up to three matches if found guilty. The former New Zealand Test star could enter an early guilty plea and accept a two-match ban or challenge the charge at the judiciary on Wednesday night.
Manly prop Grant Wooden has been charged with a grade two careless high tackle on Wests Tigers fullback Joel Caine and faces a possible three-match suspension.
His team mate Mark Shipway has been charged with a grade one dangerous throw on Tigers prop Corey Pearson and will be outed for two matches if he pleads guilty.Like
