“Mitchell has received a Grade 1 Dangerous Contact charge for an incident that occurred in the 76th minute of the match on Eels player Clinton Gutherson.
“The base penalty for the charge is 100 points.
“Should the Club enter an Early Guilty Plea, Mitchell will receive 75 points and be available for selection in next week’s Qualifying Finals match.
“If the Club elects to enter a Not Guilty Plea and are unsuccessful with their case, he will be unavailable for one match through suspension.
“The Club has until 12pm Tuesday to enter a plea.”
The Roosters are already without representative star Dylan Napa due to a three-week suspension, who will be available to play in the grand final if Sydney win their first final.
