North Queensland forward Josh McGuire has escaped suspension for his apparent eye gouge on Melbourne’s Cameron Munster on Friday night.
McGuire was hit with a $3350 fine for contrary conduct, with vision showing McGuire bringing his hand up to Munster and raking it across his face.
Despite experts suggesting it wasn’t a good look for the game, McGuire will not spend any time on the sidelines following the incident.
The same cannot be said for Gold Coast Titan Jarrod Wallace, who is facing a fortnight out of the game for a shoulder charge.
Wallace can accept a two-match penalty if he takes the early plea, but could miss three game if he’s found guilty.
Titans rake Mitch Rein can accept an early plea which will see him available next weekend, after a dangerous throw on Panther Nathan Cleary.
Nene Macdonald, Kurt Baptiste and Christian Welch were all charged, but can all avoid suspension with early pleas.
