At least three players will be sweating on the findings of the NRL match review committee today after being placed on report over the weekend.
St George Illawarra hooker Dean Young and Bulldogs front rower Nate Myles will both come under scrutiny for swinging arms, while Canberra's Alan Rothery will be hoping to escape being charged for a high tackle against the New Zealand Warriors on Saturday night.
Meanwhile, Wests Tigers and Penrith are sweating on the results of scans on their skippers who are both in doubt for this weekend's round of NRL matches.
Tigers captain Brett Hodgson is nursing a suspected broken hand sustained in the win over Cronulla on Sunday which threatens to see him join team mate Benji Marshall on the sidelines for an extended period.
The diminutive fullback will learn the results of scans today after damaging the hand late in the second half of the Campbelltown Stadium clash, but is believed to be in extreme doubt for Friday night's match against Parramatta.
Panthers skipper Tony Puletua will also learn the extent of his rib cartilage injury after he was forced from the field in the opening minutes of his side's clash with Melbourne.
And Sydney Roosters winger Amos Roberts will undergo scans on his knee after it blew up following his side's 24-6 loss to Brisbane on Friday night.
