Melbourne winger Suliasi Vunivalu is facing a one-match ban after being charged for dangerous contact in the Storm's big NRL win over Gold Coast.
The Fijian flyer tackled Phillip Sami in the air as the Titan attempted to defuse a bomb in the 41st minute of the Storm's 38-18 win at Cbus Super Stadium.
With 50 per cent loading for a prior similar offence, Vunivalu will miss Saturday's clash with Manly with or without an early guilty plea and will only be free to play if he challenges the charge and wins.
Titans back Brenko Lee - for a tackle on Vunivalu - and the Storm's Joe Stimson were also hit with grade one dangerous contact charges from the round 18 clash.
Both, however, can avoid a ban with early guilty pleas.
Penrith's Viliame Kikau will head to the judiciary on Tuesday night in a bid to avoid a one-game ban for a shoulder charge.
Kikau is risking a two-game ban by challenging his sanction after he was cited for a challenge on St George Illawarra half Darren Nicholls during the Panthers' 40-18 win on Friday night.
Cronulla's Andrew Fifita has, however, taken the early plea after being cited for a shoulder charge in the Sharks' loss to the Warriors.
The Tongan international flew out of the line to put a shot on Lachlan Burr, a decision which led to a game-tying penalty conversion for the Warriors before they sealed a 19-18 win with Blake Green's field goal.
Fifita will now miss Thursday's crucial clash with North Queensland, as both teams aim to stay in touch with the top eight.
Brisbane's young forward Thomas Flegler will also sit out this weekend, taking a one-match ban with an early guilty plea on his grade one dangerous contact head/neck charge from last Thursday's win over Canterbury at Suncorp Stadium.
Outside back Kotoni Staggs will be free to play against Queensland rivals Gold Coast this Saturday after avoiding a ban with an early guilty plea on his dangerous contact charge from the same game.
