Judiciary Update: Saifiti charged

nib Newcastle Knights forward Jacob Saifiti has been charged with striking by the Match Review Committee following his side's loss to the Bulldogs.

Saifiti was sent to the sin bin in the final minute of Newcastle's Round 13 game after head-butting Bulldogs hooker Reed Mahoney, and has been cited with a Grade 1 Striking charge.

As it is his second offence, the prop faces a $3,000 fine with an early guilty plea or a two-match ban should he unsuccessfully contest the charge at the judiciary.
