Woolford facing two week ban

Canberra Raiders captain Simon Woolford is facing a possible two week suspension after being charged with a high tackle by the National Rugby League today.

Woolford faces two weeks out if he is found guilty but can escape with a one week ban if he submits an early guilty plea.

The grade two charge stems from a first half tackle on Panthers prop Joel Clinton during last Friday night's clash at Canberra Stadium. Clinton suffered concussion but did return late in the second half.

Meanwhile, Danny Nutley (Sharks) and Ben Hornby (Dragons) will escape suspension if they submit an early guilty plea after both were charged with a grade one dangerous throw.

Both would miss a week if they fought the charge and lost.

Woolford, Nutley and Hornby were the only players charged following round two of the Telstra Premiership.
