A shoulder charge has seen Sharks forward Briton Nikora offered a three-week holiday, with both Nikora and Jackson have until noon Monday to respond to the charges.

Daniel Suluka-Fifita’s has been offered a two-week suspension after his poor act. He was charged with striking after he struck Souths Jai Arrow.

  1. Jack Bird has been fantastic for the Dragons in the last 3 games. I was skeptical in buying him but center is his spot and for me has probably been the most impressive part of the year. But this was stupid and should have got longer imo. Massive brain explosion. Players who get suspended for this kind of stuff should be docked 1/25th of their pay per week. I hope he understands he’s let the team down for this week.
