Raiders forward Joseph Tapine.

Tapine to miss two matches, Papalii fined

Raiders duo Joseph Tapine and Josh Papalii have entered early guilty pleas over incidents in Sunday's loss to the Dragons, with Tapine copping a two-match suspension for a shoulder charge on Matt Dufty.

With two prior offences within the past two seasons and 85 carryover points to his name, Tapine will miss two matches. He would have risked a possible three-match suspension if he fought the charge at the judiciary and lost.

Meanwhile Papalii has been fined $1350 over a grade on careless high tackle, also on Dufty.

Earlier Melbourne's Curtis Scott received a two-match ban for a grade three striking charge on Manly's Dylan Walker, while Sea Eagles hooker Apisai Koroisau was suspended for one match for striking Scott.
