Sharks’ trio facing bans after Dragons thriller

Cronulla’s depth will be severely tested as three players face bans following the club’s 13-12 win over St George-Illawarra last night.

Mawene Hiroti, Josh Dugan and Teig Wilton are all facing a week on the sidelines.

Hiroti was charged with a grade two careless high tackle on Cody Ramsey and will miss a week with an early plea.

He will be banned for two games if he fights the charge and loses.

Dugan and Wilton face the same punishment for a careless high tackle and crusher tackle.

The Dragons’ Josh Kerr is facing time on the sidelines for a shoulder charge on Aiden Tolman. He could sit for two games if he challenges the charge or can miss one game with an early plea.

Paul Vaughan escaped with a fine for his high shot on Will Chambers, with the match review committee ruling it a grade one offence.
