Canberra Raiders winger Jordan Rapana will miss the start of the 2022 NRL season after he was charged in the Maori All Stars' win over the Indigenous All Stars on Saturday night.

The 32-year-old Rapana, who was cited for two seperate incidents on the night, was charged with a Grade 1 Shoulder Charge on Titans forward David Fifita in the 13th minute as Fifita set up Jesse Ramien for the first try of the night.

The 200-point base penalty charge for Rapana is increased to 210 points with an early guilty plea following two non-similar offences in the last two years.

Trial matches do not count towards a player's suspension, meaning Rapana will miss the first two games of the regular season as the Raiders take on the Sharks and Cowboys after taking the early guilty plea.

There were no other charges out of Saturday's All Stars matches, with all 16 clubs set to take to the field for the first time this weekend in trial games.
