Thanks to Rugby League Project!
Six players were issued fines in Round 13 across Thursday and Saturday's matches, with no players charged Friday. Two more were fined on Monday, bringing the total to eight.
Only Nick Cotric (Canberra) and Ray Stone (Dolphins) are facing a risk of suspension, should either of them challenge their charge and lose (or enter a no-contest plea).
By Monday afternoon, all eight players had entered early pleas, accepting fines.
Here's who's in line to return to the field next weekend.
Brisbane's Corey Oates (knee)
Canterbury's Braidon Burns (knee) and Raymond Faitala-Mariner (sick)
