South Sydney fullback Greg Inglis is facing up to four matches on the sidelines after he was charged with a shoulder charge by the match review panel following Wednesday’s dramatic State of Origin Game Three contest.
Inglis, who has been hit with a grade two shoulder charge, was one of three players cited, with Broncos forward Corey Parker (grade two dangerous contact) and Sharks forward Andrew Fifita (grade one contrary conduct) both facing a week on the sidelines.
Inglis was hit with his grade two charge following a tackle on NSW centre Josh Dugan in the 48th minute. The Rabbitohs star will miss three matches with an early guilty plea, but would risk missing four matches if he fights the charge at the NRL judiciary and loses.
Parker was cited for his challenge on NSW forward James Tamou in the 72nd minute and will miss a match unless he fights the charge successfully at the NRL judiciary.
Fifita will also miss a match for his contrary conduct on Origin debutant Gavin Cooper in the 51st minute, unless he challenges the charge at the NRL judiciary.
