Monday's Anzac Day clash had an unusually high judiciary scrutiny, with five players cited.
The two most serious are Roosters halfback Brett Finch who could be peeling oranges for two weeks after being charged with grade 1 contrary conduct, and Dragons winger Wes Naiqama who copped a grade 2 contrary conduct charge for an attempted trip.
Others to be charged from the game are forwards Jason Cayless (Roosters), Jason Ryles and Justin Poore (Dragons) who will all avoid suspension by taking early guilty pleas. Other players in the same situation are Parramatta's John Morris, Wests Tigers' Ben Galea and Melbourne's Dennis Scott.
Meanwhile Canberra centre Adam Mogg may miss one match for a careless high tackle.
