Bulldogs hooker Michael Ennis is in danger of missing Friday night’s NRL clash with St George Illawarra after being charged with a careless high tackle by the match review committee. Ennis faces a one-match ban whether he takes the early guilty plea or unsuccessfully fights the charge. The grade two charge stems from a sixth minute high shot on Newcastle opposite Matt Hilder in Saturday night’s 20-16 win to the Knights at ANZ Stadium. Two other players – Warriors pivot James Maloney and the Gold Coast’s Bodene Thompson – were charged with making dangerous contact with a kicker. Neither will be suspended if they accept the early guilty plea.
