'Shrek' to face the music

Mark O'Meley has been ordered to face a disciplinary hearing for his role in a brawl at the conclusion of Saturday's loss to Great Britain. A dust-up between Paul Sculthorpe and Craig Fitzgibbon sparked a full-scale brawl. Neither player was punished but O'Meley was cited by the referee.

The Kangaroos are currently in France preparing for a Test match on Sunday.

A one-game ban would rule him out of that but anything more would see him miss the Tri-Nations final.

With the squad being out of the country, the disciplinary hearing in Leeds on Wednesday will probably be conducted via the phone.

The 23-year-old Canterbury Bulldogs player was making his debut in the match at Wigan and had flown his family over especially to see him play.
