Stevens heads up judiciary hit
Cronulla front rower Jason Stevens could miss next Saturday night's clash with North Queensland after being charged with 'Grade 1 Contrary Conduct - Knee Lift' by the NRL match review committee.
The Sharks prop was charged following an incident which saw Parramatta hooker PJ Marsh taken from the field in a neck brace in the Eels' 34-26 victory at Toyota Park on Saturday night. Marsh was later cleared of any serious injury.
A guilty verdict, or an early guilty plea, will see Stevens will miss one match.

Meanwhile, Parramatta Eels forward FuiFui Moimoi has been charged with a 'Grade 5 High Tackle - Careless' and could be out for eight weeks following a high tackle on Sharks' forward Hutch Maiava. An early guilty plea will seee Moimoi suspended for six weeks.
Sydney Roosters may be without skipper Luke Ricketson for three matches after being charged with a 'Grade 2 Striking' in his side's 30-16 win over Canberra at Gosford on Saturday night. An early guilty plea will see Ricketson miss just two weeks.
In what has been a busy day for the match review committee, Raiders prop Ben Cross has been charged with a 'Grade 1 High Tackle - Careless' and could miss one game.
