Manly prop Addin Fonua-Blake faces a two-week suspension after being charged for two separate dangerous contact offences in his side’s loss to Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday. The Sea Eagles’ big man was charged for an eighth-minute challenge of a Benji Marshall kick and for a 36th-minute incident involving Wests Tigers prop Russell Packer.
Fonua-Blake will miss just one match if he pleads guilty to both charges. He will miss two games if he challenges the charges and loses.
In the other incident to attract the attention of the judiciary in that match, Manly forward Joel Thompson has been fined following a tripping offence on Corey Thompson in the 52nd minute.
If Thompson accepts the early guilty plea his fine will be $1350. If he challenges the penalty and loses the fine will be $1800.

Brooks was lucky he missed with his trip attempt.

Should have been 10 in the bin. It was a really dumb, dirty play by Fonua-Blake.
If Marshall lands wrong he could have done his knee or broken his leg and we’d have been down a player the entire game, not to mention had a career ended.

Double crap from Fonua … a grub.
