Justin Hodges will have to head to the judiciary to take part in the NRL Grand Final after he was cited for a Grade 1 dangerous throw by the NRL match review committee on Sunday afternoon.
Hodges was charged for his tackle on Roosters forward Aiden Guerra in the 57th minute of the Broncos 31-12 victory in the Preliminary Final at Suncorp Stadium.
An early guilty plea would not be enough for the Broncos superstar centre to avoid suspension, meaning he’ll have to successfully fight the charge at the NRL judicariy to take part in what would be his last ever game.
Hodges has announced his retirement from rugby league, meaning if he is found guilty, he’ll have played his 250th and last ever NRL match.
It is expected the Broncos will fight the charge at the NRL judiciary to give their captain a chance to play in the decider.
The Broncos will clash with the Cowboys at ANZ Stadium on Sunday, October 4, for the Provan-Summons Trophy.
