The Dolphins will accept the grading of Jeremy Marshall-King’s dangerous contact charge and he will be suspended.
Marshall-King was handed a charge out of the Dolphins’ 20-14 victory over the Raiders on Saturday night.
The tackle on Corey Horsburgh was judged a grade two dangerous contact, which carried a suspension of two weeks if Marshall-King took an early guilty plea.
The acceptance of the charge means Marshall-King will miss the Dolphins’ matches against the Knights in Newcastle this Friday, and next week’s Battle For Brisbane against the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium.
Marshall-King: We made it hard for ourselves

Gilbert is free to play against the Knights on Friday.
