Star Raider faces ban for Roosters clash

Raiders' Papali'i may face Roosters without tackle, possible two-week ban for dangerous contact.

The Canberra Times

The Canberra Raiders might have to take on the Sydney Roosters forward pack without one of their key enforcers.

Josh Papali'i faces a two-week suspension for his hip-drop tackle on Bulldogs second-rower Viliame Kikau on Friday night.

He can reduce that to a one-game ban with an early guilty plea after the match review committee charged him with grade-two dangerous contact in the 40th minute of the Raiders' gutsy 24-20 victory over Canterbury at Lang Park.
