Ma'u, Koroibete facing time out

Eels forward Manu Ma'u and Storm winger Marika Koroibete are both facing suspension, two of three players cited by the NRL match review committee from Easter Monday's NRL Telstra Premiership fixtures.

Ma'u (grade one dangerous contact – head/neck) was charged for his 58th minute challenge on Wests Tigers forward Josh Aloiai, and a poor record will see him miss two matches if he pleads guilty to the charge or is found guilty at the judiciary.

Koroibete was charged with tripping and is also set to miss a match through suspension due to 88 carryover points.

Newcastle's Nathan Ross was hit with a grade one dangerous contact charge but can escape suspension with an early guilty plea.

Earlier, Ryan James, Chase Stanley, Frank-Paul Nuuausala and Joel Thompson were charged by the match review committee, with James the only player facing a possible one-match suspension.
