Tighe set to miss a week

Penrith Panthers centre Brad Tighe is facing a week on the sidelines after he was charged with a dangerous throw on Eels centre Paul Whatuira by the NRL’s match review panel.

North Queensland’s Gavin Cooper and Newcastle Knight’s Zeb Taia were both charged with reckless high tackles, but will be free to play if they take the early guilty pleas.

There were no charges from the Toyota Cup.
