Cronulla's Matt Prior and Canberra's Joseph Tapine were both handed financial sanctions following grade one charges from round six matches.

Prior has been fined $1350 for a high tackle on Dragons prop James Graham, midway through the second half of their clash on Friday night.

Tapine has been fined $1100 for tripping Paramatta's Kenny Edwards in the 40th minute of their clash on Saturday.

Finally, Dragons forward Tariq Sims has been cleared to play this weekend after entering a guilty plea for making dangerous contact to the head or neck of Sharks halfback Chad Townsend.

Sims will now have 90 carryover points, meaning his next offence will result in a ban.
