James charged for Tedesco tackle
Titans prop Ryan James has been charged with a grade two careless high tackle for his hit on Tigers fullback James Tedesco, one of three players cited by the NRL match review committee from the three Saturday games in Round 23 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.
James, who has one prior non-similar offence in the past two years, would serve a one-match ban if he accepts an early guilty plea or is found guilty at the judiciary.
Fellow Gold Coast prop David Shillington (grade one dangerous contact – other) was also charged, but will escape suspension with an early guilty plea.
Rabbitohs prop Zane Musgrove (grade one shoulder charge) could also miss his side's next match, with an early guilty plea resulting in a week on the sidelines.
