NRL Judiciary Report: Sezer, Chan facing stint on sidelines

Wests Tigers halfback Aidan Sezer is facing a stint on the sidelines after being hit with a Grade 2 Dangerous Contact charge in Saturday's loss to the Rabbitohs. 

The halfback was sent to the sin bin for the tackle on South Sydney fullback Jye Gray in the 68th minute and will sit out two games if he takes the early guilty plea. Sezer will miss three matches if he fights the charge and loses. 

Melbourne forward Joe Chan is also facing a suspension after copping a Grade 2 Careless High Tackle charge in his side's victory over the Roosters. 

Chan was also sent to the sin bin for the shot on Roosters forward Victor Radley in the 46th minute. Chan will miss two games with an early guilty plea and three if he fights the charge and loses. 

It was one of two charges for the Storm forward following the win, with Chan receiving a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact charge for a tackle on Dominic Young early in the second half. He is facing an $1800 fine with the early guilty plea.

Roosters back Joseph-Aukuso Sua'ali'i is also looking at an $1800 fine after receiving a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact Charge. 

NSW Blues forward Cameron Murray and squad member Haumole Olakau'atu will both miss two games after pleading guilty to Contrary Conduct charges arising from the Origin Three melee that resulted in nine players being charged.

Murray and Olakau'atu were hit with Grade 3 Contrary Conduct charges after joining the melee despite not being on the field of play at the time.

The other Blues players charged for their part in the melee were Brian To'o (Grade 2 Contrary Conduct), Payne Haas (Grade 1 Contrary Conduct) and 18th Man Matt Burton (Grade 1 Contrary Conduct).

Maroons players Jeremiah Nanai (Grade 2), Reuben Cotter (Grade 2), Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow (Grade 2) and Felise Kaufusi (Grade 1) were also hit Contrary Conduct offences.

All seven players have taken the early guilty plea and will pay a fine.

Nanai sent to the bin

The melee occurred in the 31st minute of the decider with players from both teams coming together over the sideline at Suncorp Stadium.

Murray was sin binned after running from the bench to become involved, while Olakau'atu, who was wearing a suit as he was 19th man, was evicted from the playing area by a ground manager.

He was not allowed to return for the on-field presentation after full-time.

Kurt Capewell has also pleaded guilty to charges related to two other incidents during the Suncorp Stadium decider, a Grade 1 Dangerous Throw on Stephen Crichton and Grade 1 Dangerous Contact on Mitch Moses.
