Five-eighth Braith Anasta will miss the Wests Tigers' clash with the Cowboys this Saturday after pleading guilty a shoulder charge in his side’s win over Manly at the weekend.

Anasta was charged with a Grade 2 shoulder charge for his 64th minute hit on Sea Eagles winger David Williams and will miss the Tigers' first home game at Campbelltown after taking the early plea. He would have risked a two-match ban by fighting the charge.

Storm forward Dayne Weston will miss Monday’s home game against the Dragons after copping a one-match ban for a Grade 2 dangerous contact charge, stemming from a 54th minute crusher tackle on Titans fullback David Mead on Sunday.

St George Illawarra’s Jack de Belin will also be out for a week after pleading guilty to a Grade 1 dangerous throw on South Sydney enforcer Sam Burgess. Teammate Jason Nightingale escaped suspension for his 76th minute careless high tackle on young hooker Apisai Koroisau.

Cowboys forward Tariq Sims was not cited after being put on report for a possible shoulder charge during last night's clash against Newcastle.
