Judiciary Report: Tigers facing bans; Papali'i suspended

Wests Tigers centres Brent Naden and Justin Olam face suspension after being charged over incidents in Sunday night's 24-12 loss to the Dolphins at Suncorp Stadium.

Naden and Olam were each charged with Grade 2 Dangerous Contact for respective tackles on Jack Bostock and Jamayne Isaako and face a one-match ban with an early guilty plea.

However, if they unsuccessfully challenge the charge, Naden and Olam would be suspended for two matches.

Both men have until 12pm on Tuesday to enter a plea as do Panthers prop James Fisher-Harris, Storm front-rower Nelson Asofa-Solomona and Warriors forward Jackson Ford.

Fisher-Harris and Asofa-Solomona were charged for Grade 1 Dangerous Contact and can accept a $1,000 fine with an early plea, as can Ford, who was charged with a Grade 1 Dangerous Throw.  

Meanwhile, veteran prop Josh Papali'i will miss Canberra's Round 12 clash with the Roosters after being one of three Raiders players charged over incidents in Friday night's 24-20 win against the Bulldogs.

Papali'i was sin binned in the first half of the opening match of Magic Round for a hip drop tackle on Viliame Kikau and accepted a one-match  ban for Grade 2 dangerous contact.

Knights forward Jack Hetherington has been fined $1800 after pleading guilty to a Grade 1 Careless High Tackle.

Titans enforcer Keenan Palasia and Rabbitohs rookie Dion Teaupa both received $1000 fines with early guilty pleas to Careless High Tackle charges.

Raiders forward Joseph Tapine (Careless High Tackle) has been fined $1000 and teammate Jordan Rapana (Dangerous Contact) was also fined $1000 after entering an early guilty plea.

Brisbane forward Brendan Piakura has been fined $1000 for a Grade 1 Careless High Tackle on Manly's Corey Waddell.
