Parramatta stars Dylan Brown, Marat Niukore face lengthy bans following Roosters clash

Parramatta stars Dylan Brown and Marata Niukore face weeks on the sidelines following the side’s controversial win over the Roosters.

The Match Review Committee has hit Brown with a grade three dangerous contact charge which could see him rubbed out for four weeks after leading with the knees in his contact with the Roosters’ Drew Hutchison, which led to the star being taken to hospital.

If Brown takes the early guilty plea he’ll sit out three weeks but if he chooses to fight the charge at the NRL judiciary and loses he’ll be suspended for a month.

Niukore faces a three-game ban for a grade two careless high tackle on the Roosters’ James Tedesco. The Eels centre can escape with a two-game suspension with an early guilty plea.

The Review Committee also charged the Roosters’ Siosiua Taukeiaho with a careless high tackle but he only faces a fine. If the forward challenges the charge and loses he’ll pay $1,150 as opposed to $750 with the early plea.

The Panthers’ Liam Martin also faces a fine for contrary conduct from his side’s clash with Cronulla.

Martin can escape with a $1,150 fine with an early plea.
