Hetherington was sent off in the 55th-minute of the Queensland Country Bank Stadium clash and is now set for a lengthy stint on the sidelines.
The match review committee on Monday charged him with a grade-three careless high tackle, resulting in a five-game suspension with an early plea or six games if he contests it and fails.

Speaking post-match, Bulldogs coach Trent Barrett said he believes there was no malice in the act.
“He certainly caught him high,” Barrett told reporters.
“It wasn’t an intentional shot from Jack, he just hung his arm out and Val’s ok … I haven’t had a look at it yet, to be honest with you.”
It comes ahead of Canterbury’s clashes against the Sharks, Eels, Dragons, Raiders, Titans and Panthers.
However, the club will dispute the grading of the charge at the NRL judiciary and try to downgrade it, which would get Radley off with a $1900 fine and make him available for selection this week.
The hearing will be held on Tuesday night.
Tolman will miss his side’s clash against his old club, the Bulldogs, this Saturday.
