Match review

Five players charged across the first six games, with all to escape with fines provided they enter an early plea. The only player at any suspension risk is Aidan Sezer (Tigers) who could miss 2 games if he fights a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact charge and loses - his 3+ priors working against him.

On Monday, four players were hit with charges from the Sunday clash between Canterbury and Newcastle - three Bulldogs were fined while Jack Hetherington's attempt to fight Reed Mahoney in the tunnel after being sin-binned has earned the firebrand prop a Grade 2 Contrary Conduct charge for which he'll miss 1-2 matches, plea depending.
