Meanwhile, the Panthers have announced forward Jack Hetherington is set to be sidelined after being charged for a high tackle on Sydney Roosters fullback James Tedesco.

Hetherington has been charged with a grade-two careless high tackle by the match review committee after collecting Tedesco in the 50th minute of Saturday's victory at Panthers Stadium.

With loading and carry-over points, Hetherington will receive a two-match suspension whether he enters an early guilty plea or is found guilty at judiciary.

He has until noon Monday to enter a plea.

Police have cleared Penrith superstar Nathan Cleary of committing any social distancing offences after having a group of women in his house.

Cleary, who was fined $4000 by the NRL on Tuesday, will not receive a further punishment from police after they cleared him of any wrongdoing.

Other people in the house at the time are the still subject of an investigation, as police clamp down on anyone breaking the coronavirus-related public health order.

It's believed Cleary has been spared as he did not leave his residence when the group of at least five girls visited.

I’d expect Matt Burton to come in whilst Cleary is out for two weeks.

Luai will really have to step up in the halves.

Capewell should be back from injury as well and he will get a bench spot for sure.
