    Hill, Slater face lengthy spells
    April 3, 2006

    MELBOURNE five-eighth Scott Hill faces a four-week ban for making contact with referee Jason Robinson during Storm's NRL loss to Wests Tigers yesterday.

    Storm teammate Billy Slater meanwhile faces seven weeks on the sidelines after receiving a grade-five kicking charge for lashing out at Wests Tigers forward John Skandalis in a tackle during the match at Leichhardt Oval.

    Slater will cop a six-match ban if he enters an early guilty plea because he still has 68 carry-over points to his name from a previous conviction.

    The NRL match review committee charged Hill with grade-four contrary conduct for making contact with Robinson while remonstrating over a Tigers try early in the second half of the 30-28 loss.

    He will receive a three-week suspension for an early guilty plea, and four weeks if he contests the charge and is found guilty.

    The pair were among nine players charged today.

    Wests Tigers duo Anthony Laffranchi (dangerous throw) and Jamaal Lolesi (careless high tackle) were also charged from the Leichhardt fixture.

    Because of carry-over points, Laffranchi faces a two-week ban – regardless of whether he makes an early plea – while Lolesi can escaped sanction with an early plea.

    Four Parramatta players were charged from Friday night's loss to North Queensland, with Chad Robinson facing a ban of two weeks (one with an early guilty plea) for striking.

    Brett Delaney (contrary conduct/grapple tackle), Justin Tsoulos and Paul Stringer (high tackles) can escape punishment with early pleas.

    Canberra hooker Simon Woolford has also been charged with a careless high tackle.

    Woolford will miss two games even with a guilty plea.

    Lolesi should get 8 weeks for that hit. Nearly as bad as Hoppa's.

    Interesting to see nobody charged over the lifting tackle in the Sharks/Bunnies game that led to the Lance Thompson try just on half time. The "experts" on Fox were positive charges would be laid.
