Wests Tigers prop Alex Twal.

Wests Tigers forwards Chris McQueen and Alex Twal have escaped suspension after pleading guilty to judiciary charges coming out of their side's win over Gold Coast.

McQueen was charged over a fourth-minute dangerous contact incident involving Moeaki Fotuaiki while Twal was cited over a dangerous throw in the 47th minute.

Both have entered early guilty pleas and escaped suspension with 75 carry-over points against their name.

In the other charge from Saturday's matches, Sharks fullback William Kennedy has been charged with a Grade 1 tripping offence. With an early guilty plea he has received a $1150 fine.

Penrith hooker Sione Katoa is free to play in Penrith's Saturday afternoon road meeting with the Raiders after pleading guilty to a dangerous contact charge relating to his late-game clash with Dane Gagai in Friday night's 22-18 loss to the Rabbitohs.

Katoa's knees appeared to come into contact with Gagai after he scored a crucial try for the Bunnies in the 73rd minute.

No penalty was given after the bunker reviewed the incident, but the NRL Match Review Committee deemed Katoa's contact illegal.
