Dragons hit hard by match review committee

Four St George Illawarra players have been cited by the NRL match review committee following the Dragons' 44-18 Magic Round loss to the Melbourne Storm on Sunday.

Tyrell Fuimaono – who was sent off 11 minutes into the game for his hit on Storm fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen – is facing five weeks on the sideline with an early guilty plea after being charged with a grade one reckless high tackle.

Josh McGuire has been charged twice. While a grade one careless high tackle on Justin Olam sees him fined $2600, McGuire's grade three dangerous contact charge on Josh Addo-Carr has procured a five-round suspension with an early guilty plea.

One prior similar offence and four prior non-similar offences in the last two years have not helped McGuire's cause. If he were to fight the dangerous contact charge and lose, McGuire would miss the next seven games.

One week back from suspension, Mikaele Ravalawa is looking at another fortnight spell after being charged with a grade one shoulder charge on Olam also.

Tariq Sims is the final player who was charged, a grade two dangerous contact on Tyson Smoothy. Sims is facing one week on the sideline with an early guilty plea.
