Brisbane forward Josh McGuire could find himself on the sidelines following an incident during the Broncos’ loss to the Bulldogs on Thursday night.

During the 24th minute of their clash, McGuire was seen pulling the hair of Canterbury’s Adam Elliott, with the Dogs lock taking exception to McGuire’s actions and shoving him in the chest following the incident.

McGuire will miss the Broncos’ clash with the Cowboys next week if he submits and early plea, although he if he decides to fight the charge, he could miss two matches.

The incident follows on from scenes including McGuire’s teammate Anthony Milford a fortnight ago, when Milford floored Penrith’s Corey Harawira-Naera by pulling his hair.

Milford received a $1150 fine for his actions, and escaped a suspension.
