Two more charged by NRL
The National Rugby League judiciary has charged two more players this afternoon.
After naming four players on his charge sheet this morning, NRL judiciary commissioner Jim Hall has added South Sydney's Jamie Russo for grade one striking and New Zealand Warrior Monty Betham for a grade two careless high tackle after consulting additional camera angles. Russo won't miss a week even if he fights the charge and is found guilty.
Betham will also walk away with an early plea but will miss one match if he contests the charge and loses at the NRL judiciary in Sydney tomorrow night.
Earlier, Hall charged Broncos half Shaun Berrigan for grade two contrary conduct, Wests Tigers forward John Skandalis for grade one careless high tackle, Bulldogs skipper Steve Price for grade three careless high tackle and teammate Luke Patten for a grade two careless high tackle.
Players have until noon tomorrow to enter a plea.
