Round 8 Charges

St George Illawarra second rower Lance Thompson is the only player charged by the National Rugby League judiciary.

Thompson has been charged with a grade-one striking offence after using a forearm to the head of Cronulla halfback Brett Kimmorley in the 36th minute of yesterday's game at Oki Jubilee Stadium.

However, he won't miss any matches even if he is found guilty of the charge, with the veteran forward not accruing enough penalty points to be banned.
