Pangai Junior was charged with a Grade 2 Dangerous Contact charge for his 17th minute hit on Cronk, which left him floored.
When will @NRL get serious on stamping out these dog shots out of the game? Each year the game’s playmakers cop grubby acts of thuggery like the late hit on Cronk by Pangai Jr. Yet we keep harping on about play welfare. Make an example of these tough guys #NRLRoostersBroncos #NRL pic.twitter.com/03WhZKYhmz

If Pangai Junior enters a guilty plea he’ll miss two matches, although he could miss three if he fights the charge and loses.
Tevita Pangai Junior facing two match ban with early guilty plea for that shot on Cooper Cronk last night. 3 games if he fights the charge and loses. Should count himself lucky. Could have been longer
