The Dolphins will contest the grading of Felise Kaufusi’s dangerous contact charge at the NRL judiciary.
Kaufusi was charged with grade two dangerous contact out of a tackle on Newcastle’s Jackson Hastings in the 36-20 win over the Knights.
However the Dolphins will aim to have the grading lowered to allow Kaufusi to play in Friday’s Battle of Brisbane blockbuster against the Broncos.
A downgrade would leave Kaufusi with a fine only, while if the challenge is unsuccessful, his suspension will rise from three to four weeks.
Kaufusi sent to the bin
Kaufusi has been handed a grade two dangerous contact charge for a 70th minute tackle on Jackson Hastings that also earned him 10 minutes in the sin bin.
