Dolphins forward Jarrod Wallace is facing a four week ban after being cited for a shoulder charge on Penrith’s Spencer Leniu.

The incident happened in the 36th minute of Penrith’s 24-14 win over the Dolphins in Redcliffe yesterday.

Incredibly, the ugly tackle did not result in Wallace being sin-binned with a penalty the only punishment.

The Dolphins enforcer is facing three matches out with an early plea or four matches if he’s found guilty at the judiciary.

Meanwhile, Felise Kaufusi has been charged with a high tackle on Zac Hosking.

He faces two weeks out if he fights the charge and loses, but only a monetary penalty with an early plea.

No Penrith players were charged by the Match Review Committee.
