Eels back-rower Tepai Moeroa.

Moeroa, Gosiewski accept shoulder charge bans

Parramatta forward Tepai Moeroa and Manly's Jack Gosiewski will both be suspended after pleading guilty to shoulder charges from round 13.

Moeroa will miss three matches after pleading guilty to a grade three shoulder charge on Newcastle's Chris Heighington during the second half of the Eels' loss at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.

Meanwhile Gosiewski - who is expected to spend several weeks on the sideline with a broken arm - entered a no contest plea to his grade one shoulder charge on Cowboys halfback Johnathan Thurston and will be suspended for two matches, with 40 carryover points.
