Tapine charged with dangerous throw
Canberra Raiders forward Joseph Tapine has been charged with a dangerous throw but can avoid suspension with an early guilty plea.
Tapine was hit with a grade one charge for a tackle on Titans prop Ryan James in the 68th minute of the Raiders' win over the Gold Coast.
The second-rower risks a one-match ban if he fights the charge at the judiciary and loses, but can accept 90 carryover points with an early guilty plea.
He was the only player charged by the match review committee from Saturday's round nine NRL matches.
