Dangerous throws send Robinson and Falloon to the sidelines
PARRAMATTA winger Reece Robinson and Gold Coast hooker Beau Falloon are each set to miss at least two games each after being charged with dangerous throws by the NRL's match review committee.
Robinson (pictured) was hit with a grade-two dangerous throw charge for his tackle on Joel Reddy in the 71st minute of the Eels' 29-16 upset win over the Rabbitohs on Friday night, and will miss two games even with an early guilty plea. He would risk an extra week out by challenging the charge.
A grade-one dangerous throw charge means Falloon will spend two weeks on the sidelines, regardless of his plea. His 87 carryover points from a similar charge in the past two years took him past the one-game suspension for that offence.
Parramatta's Brad Takairangi, Bulldog David Klemmer and Manly duo Dunamis Lui and Jake Trbojevic were all charged with grade-one dangerous throws, but can escape suspension with early guilty pleas.
Wests Tigers centre Chris Lawrence and Raiders hooker Josh Hodgson (both dangerous contact charges), and Eels prop Darcy Lussick (careless high tackle), will also avoid suspensions with early guilty pleas.
Manly's woes have continued with front-rower Brenton Lawrence set for back surgery which could end his season.
Fellow front-rower Josh Starling faces another four weeks on the sidelines after re-injuring his knee in the 12-4 loss to the Dragons at the weekend.
