Roosters hooker Ben Marschke has successfully challenged a grade one crusher tackle charge at the judiciary on Tuesday night and is free to play against Melbourne this week.

Marschke was risking a two-match ban if found guilty at the judiciary.

Eels five-eighth Dylan Brown will miss the round six clash with Canberra after taking an early guilty plea on a crusher tackle offence in Parramatta's loss to the Dragons on Sunday night.

The match review committee issued a grade charge over a 17th-minute tackle on Dragons forward Tyrell Fuimaono.

Eels fullback Clint Gutherson was handed a grade-one careless high tackle charge and was fined $1150.

Panthers star Stephen Crichton has been docked $1350 over a grade-one contrary conduct charge for his role in a melee during Penrith's win over Canberra on Friday night.

Broncos forward Alex Glenn ($1700 for dangerous contact) was the other player fined.
