Newcastle Knights enforcer David Klemmer is facing up to three weeks out of action after being charged for his high shot on Ben Trbojevic on the weekend.
Klemmer was dealt a grade two careless high tackle charge for his hit in the final minute of the game against the Sea Eagles.
The tackle was a brutal welcome to the NRL for the youngest Trbojevic brother Ben who had just run on for his debut. It was his first and only touch of the ball and he was forced to finish the game on the sidelines.
Klemmer was sin-binned for the tackle just before the Knights sealed a 18-10 victory at McDonald Jones Stadium.
