Eels forward Nathan Brown will miss the next two rounds of the Telstra Premiership whenever the competition resumes after pleading guilty to a dangerous conduct charge.

Brown earned the ire of the match review committee after colliding with Dale Copley at Cbus Super Stadium during Parramatta's round-two win.

He and Gold Coast prop Moeaki Fotuaika were granted extensions last week due to the competition being suspended.

Fotuaika was assessed with a grade-one dangerous contact following an incident involving Mitchell Moses in the 30th minute of the loss to the Eels.

He will be given a one-match ban if he is unsuccessful at the judiciary. A date for the hearing is yet to be announced.

Earlier, Knights fullback Kalyn Ponga had accepted a one-match suspension for a shoulder charge in Newcastle's win over Wests Tigers in round two of the Telstra Premiership.

An unsuccessful trip to the judiciary for Ponga would have resulted in him missing two matches.

Ponga was hit with a grade one shoulder charge offence following a 72nd-minute collision with Wests Tigers outside back Corey Thompson on Sunday.

Wests Tigers back-rower Luciano Leilua avoided suspension for a dangerous contact charge with an early guilty plea.

Raiders forward Sia Soliola has escaped a suspension despite being charged by the NRL match review committee for a grade-one careless high tackle.

Soliola was charged for a tackle on Warriors veteran Adam Blair in the 39th minute for Saturday's win at Cbus Super Stadium.

Soliola placed on report for high tackle
