Sharks five-eighth James Maloney has been found guilty by the NRL judiciary panel of a dangerous contact charge and will miss three matches.

Maloney had been charged with grade 2 dangerous contact for a tackle on Titans centre Konrad Hurrell in the 88th minute of the Sharks golden point draw on Monday night, with the panel returning a guilty verdict after a lengthy deliberation.

With the charge coming with a 300 point penalty, Maloney will now miss the Sharks next three games against the Raiders, Dragons and Souths. 

Had he taken the early guilty plea Maloney would have missed two matches.

Maloney was represented by Nick Ghabar and accompanied at NRL Central by Sharks coach Shane Flanagan and Club CEO Lyall Gorman.

The Sharks play the Canberra Raiders at Southern Cross Group Stadium on Saturday with a replacement for Maloney to be determined later in the week.

Kick-off to the game on Saturday is at 5.30pm.
