Penrith Panthers forward Jack Hetherington could face a brief stint on the sidelines after he was charged by the NRL Match Review Committee.

Hetherington tackled Sydney Roosters fullback James Tedesco high during the Panthers and Roosters clash.

The Committee deemed the high tackle was a grade two careless act. It means with carryover points, that Hetherington will miss up to two weeks if he is found guilty at the hearing or if he enters an early guilty plea.

It is unclear if the Panthers will appeal the charge.


  1. No surprise here. The pink panffer penriff poachers attacked the Roosters by stealing two front rowers…. now they are trying to knock off last seasons best players noggin.

  2. He was playing like a thug and will get suspended
    Now if he was playing for Souths he would get off any charge due to Greenburghs soft spot for them
