NRL Judiciary Report: Tuilagi accepts five-game ban; DWZ, Riki outed

Eels forward Kelma Tuilagi will miss five matches while Bronco Jordan Riki and Warrior Dallin Watene-Zelezniak have also been suspended following Round 15.

Tuilagi was charged with a Grade 3 Dangerous Throw on Queensland Origin prop Lindsay Collins in Saturday night's clash at CommBank Stadium and has chosen to plead 'no contest' meaning he has been banned for five games.

An early guilty plea would have seen Tuilagi outed for four matches but as he is nursing a thumb injury he chose not to contest the charge and received the maximum five-week ban.

Watene-Zelezniak was charged with a Grade 2 Careless High Tackle on Storm opposite Grant Anderson and has been banned for one match. He will be eligible to return against the Broncos in Round 17.

Riki will miss two matches after pleading guilty to a Grade 2 Dangerous Contact offence involving Souths captain Cameron Murray. The Broncos forward will miss games against the Warriors and Panthers before returning in Round 19.

Roosters prop Jared Waerea-Hargreaves has been fined $3000 fine after entering an early guilty plea to a Careless High Tackle charge on Parramatta's Shaun Lane.

Roosters teammate Naufahu Whyte was charged with a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact and has been fined $1000.

Mitchell sent to the bin

Rabbitohs fullback Latrell Mitchell was charged with Contrary Conduct for joining the melee after Riki's hit on Murray and has accepted a $3000 fine with an early guilty plea.

As this is his third and subsequent offence Mitchell faced a two-game suspension had he challenged the charge and been found guilty at the judiciary.

Fellow Rabbitoh Richie Kennar has been fined $1000 after entering an early guilty plea to a Careless High Tackle on Selwyn Cobbo.

Cowboys halfback Chad Townsend (Careless High Tackle) and Raiders centre Seb Kris (Careless High Tackle) both accepted fines with early guilty pleas following their clash in Canberra on Friday.

Dolphins winger Jack Bostock has been fined $1000 after he was charged with a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact offence on Cronulla's Will Kennedy.

Dragons winger Christian Tuipulotu is facing a fine for a Careless High Tackle offence in Sunday's loss to Manly. The tackle on Reuben Garrick has been assessed as Grade 1, resulting in a $1000 fine with an early guilty plea, increasing to $1500 should Tuipulotu challenge the charge and lose. He has until 12pm Tuesday to enter a plea.
