Panthers centre Stephen Crichton is facing a fine after being charged after making dangerous contact on Storm forward Chris Lewis.
The match review committee has handed Crichton a grade-one offence for dangerous contact – head/neck over a tackle in the 47th minute of Penrith’s dramatic win.
He will be fined $1150 with an early guilty plea but that will increase to $1500 if he unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the judiciary.
