Melbourne Storm halfback Jahrome Hughes has been charged with dangerous contact by the NRL judiciary following his appearance in Saturday’s match against the Gold Coast Titans.
He potentially faces a 1-2 match ban after collecting Titans’ Tanah Boyd in the early minutes of the Round 3 match between clubs.
Storm will be seeking a downgrade to Hughes’s charge at the judiciary. If successful, he would be free to play on Friday night when the Club face the Wests Tigers at AAMI Park. If unsuccessful, he will miss two games.
Teammate Justin Olam has also been cited for his high tackle on Boyd in the 18th minute, which was deemed a fair tackle during the match, and is facing a fine.
