Manly’s Jason King will escape suspension despite being charged with a grade one careless high tackle charge from Monday night’s NRL loss to St George Illawarra. The Sea Eagles co-captain will be free to face the Warriors this week regardless of whether he takes the early guilty plea or fights the charge at the NRL judiciary on Wednesday night. North Queensland second rower Scott Bolton has been named in the second row for this weekend, despite being referred straight to the judiciary for a biting charge. Bolton is the first player this season to be sent straight to the panel without a grading, and will fly from Townsville to Sydney to defend himself. However, the player he is alleged to have bitten – Gold Coast’s Clinton Toopi – is reportedly refusing to provide evidence. Fellow Cowboy Dane Hogan has been suspended for five matches after taking the early guilty plea for a grade four dangerous throw charge. Hogan was facing a possible seven games on the sidelines had he contested the serious charge, after he dumped Titans winger Kevin Gordon.
