Brisbane forward Tevita Pangai Junior is facing an extended stint on the sidelines after he was charged by the Match Review Committee following his side's heavy defeat to South Sydney.
Pangai Junior was cited for a Grade One Crusher Tackle on Rabbitohs forward Cameron Murray, with three prior non-similar offences and one prior similar offence in the past two years adding a heavy loading to the base charge.
Pangai Junior will miss the next three matches with an early guilty plea.
Roosters forward Siosiua Taukeiaho was the only player charged from Friday's matches with the prop facing a monetary fine for his high shot on Nathan Cleary.
Melbourne forward Nelson Asofa-Solomona was charged from his side's win over Wests Tigers — set to miss the next two weeks for his tackle on Joe Ofahengaue — while Dragons winger Mikaele Ravalawa will miss three matches with another should charge incident, this time on Raiders forward Elliot Whitehead.
Four players were charged from Sunday's two matches with all resulting in fines.
