Krisnan Inu faces up to seven weeks on the sidelines for his sickening tackle on Greg Inglis in the Bulldogs' NRL loss to the Rabbitohs in Sydney.

Inu has been charged with a grade four dangerous throw on Inglis meaning he will miss five weeks with an early guilty plea or seven if he challenges it and is found guilty.

Titans and Broncos forwards Luke Bailey and Sam Thaiday respectively have been hit with contrary conduct charges for making contact with the referee.

Thaiday will miss a week even with an early guilty plea while Bailey can escape penalty if he admits to the charge.

Manly's Brenton Lawrence can avoid suspension with an early guilty plea on his grade one dangerous throw.
