An early guilty plea will reduce Brown’s ban to three weeks, but will risk a month on the sidelines should he opt to contest it.
Niukore has been handed a three-game ban for his grade two careless high tackle on Roosters fullback James Tedesco.
The Eels second-rower faces a three-match suspension should he fail in an appeal against the NRL Judiciary, but can have it reduced to two weeks with an early guilty plea.
Roosters forward Siosiua Taukeiaho has been handed a $750 fine for his grade one careless high tackle on Eel Keegan Hipgrave, with a good behaviour record discounting the offence below a suspension.
