North Queensland Cowboys forward Jason Taumalolo has been suspended for two weeks after being found guilty of a shoulder charge at the NRL judiciary.

Taumalolo pleaded not guilty to the charge but was found guilty by the three-man judiciary panel.

The Dally M medalist will now miss the next two games. North Queensland were desperate to avoid the suspension with club stalwart Matt Scott ruled out for the season earlier in the week.

    He got a week.

    The other week is because that is how the NRL like to punish teams for trying to defend themselves at the judiciary. I’m not sure what the best situation would be to solve that, though – because if there were no penalties applied for attempting to get out of it, they’d all do it.
