Sharks back-rower Chris Heighington has been charged with a Grade One Dangerous throw and could face two weeks on the sideline. 

Heighington was charged for a tackle on Josh Starling in the 24th minute of the match, with the incident attracting 140 points for an early plea, 187 should he challenge and be unsuccessful in having the charge dismissed.

When added to 78 carry-over points, Heighington is looking at a two-match suspension. 

Heighington and the Sharks will consider their options and make a submission to the NRL tomorrow as to whether they will contest or accept the match review committee charge. 

Should they contest a hearing would most likely be held on Thursday due to the State of Origin match rather than the usual Wednesday night which is set aside for judiciary hearings
