Canberra centre Joey Leilua has been charged by the NRL match review committee and is facing a two-week ban.

Leilua has been charged with a grade-one dropping knees charge which comes with a base charge of 200 points.

The charge could be reduced to 180 points with an early guilty plea, however Leilua has 50 carryover points from a previous charge.

If he takes the plea he misses two weeks and has 30 carryover points. If he fights the charge and loses he will miss two weeks and have 90 carryover points.

Have until 12pm Tuesday to decide if they will take early pleas or take their case to the judiciary.

Canberra’s Hudson Young has been handed an eight-match ban for his eye-gouge on Warrior Adam Pompey.

It’s the second time Young has been banned for an eye-gouge this season, after an incident earlier this year on Aiden Tolman saw him miss five games.

The suspension is one of the longest in the NRL in recent years.

Elliott Whitehead and Ryan Sutton said they had no hesitation about outing pen to paper again to stay at Canberra for a further two seasons, extending their deals until the end of 2022.

Whitehead's new deal will extend his tenure at the club to seven years with the English international now one of the senior leaders of the Raiders.

Meanwhile Raiders forward Joseph Tapine can escape a suspension if he pleads guilty to a grade one dangerous contact charge.

Tapine was charged over an incident involving Melbourne's Brandon Smith in the 40th minute of Saturday night's win over the Storm.

The charge, including 20% loading for a prior non-similar offence, carries a 90-point penalty if Tapine enters an early guilty plea, meaning he would be free to play in Canberra's next finals match in two weeks.

Raiders forward Joseph Tapine is free to play in Canberra's preliminary final match after entering an early guilty plea to a dangerous contact charge.

The early plea resulted in 90 demerit points going against Tapine's name - 10 fewer than were required to incur a one-week suspension.

He will have 90 carry-over points against his name if he is charged in the future.

A bit of a worry if he's in trouble in Week 3.
