Wests Tigers will contest Tim Simona’s dangerous contact charge handed down by the NRL Match Review Committee from Round 5.

Simona has pleaded guilty to the Dangerous Contact charge; however, will dispute the grading at the NRL judiciary tomorrow night.

Simona was put on report in the 77th minute of the match against Cronulla last week for a tackle on Jack Bird.

If the charge is successfully downgraded, Simona will be free to play the Newcastle Knights this weekend.

The NRL Match Review Committee charged Simona with a Grade 2 offence yesterday, which carries a 250-point base penalty.

The NRL is yet to confirm a time for the hearing at Rugby League Central tomorrow night.
