New Zealand Warriors will head in to next week's clash against the Brisbane Broncos without captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck after the fullback was cited for a Shoulder Charge on Friday night.
After a tough week off the field, a disappointing night on it with a heavy loss to the Melbourne Storm was compounded further with news that Tuivasa-Sheck will miss next week's match unless he successfully fights the charge.
Brisbane forward Joe Ofahengaue was the main talking point from Saturday's games with the Broncos firebrand looking at another untimely suspension.
Ofahengaue was cited for a Grade One Shoulder Charge, with carryover points forcing the representative forward to another stint on the sidelines — confirmed to be two weeks with an early guilty plea.
Corey Oates and Jordan Rapana were also both cited for offences on Saturday, but have just attracted monetary fines and will escape suspension.
No Wests Tigers players were charged out of Sunday's win over the Bulldogs.
