Dragons forward Tyson Frizell backed up against the Titans two days after starring for NSW in Origin III.

St George Illawarra star Tyson Frizell will face the NRL judiciary on Tuesday to fight a one-match suspension for touching a referee.

Frizell was slapped with a grade one contrary conduct charge for contact on referee Chris James after brushing past him while running back into a defensive position in his team's loss to Canterbury.

If found guilty, the NSW Origin representative will miss Thursday's clash with Brisbane in Wollongong.

Dragons second-rower Joel Thompson, meanwhile, has made an early guilty plea and will sit out Thursday's clash after his high tackle on Bulldogs forward Josh Jackson.

Bulldogs five-eighth Josh Reynolds has escaped a ban after entering an early guilty plea for tripping.
