Wests Tigers back-rower Bodene Thompson will serve a one-match NRL ban for his hit on Jamie Soward in Sunday's loss to Penrith.

Thompson has entered an early guilty plea for his Grade 1 Dangerous Contact charge over the 26th-minute incident at Leichhardt Oval, and will miss this Friday night's clash with Manly.

Rabbitohs interchange forward Luke Burgess is the only other player charged out of Round 17, issued a Grade 1 Careless High Tackle charge for his shot on Titans forward Matt White, though Burgess will not miss any game time with an early guilty plea.
