Cleary and Luai cop charges

Panthers halves Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai have been charged by the NRL Match Review Committee following Friday's win over St George Illawarra Dragons.

Cleary received a grade one dangerous contact charge for a tackle on Dragons playmaker Talatau Amone in the 61st minute at Suncorp Stadium.

Despite strong complaints made by Dragons coach Anthony Griffin in his post-match press conference, the NRL Match Review Committee affirmed the view of the match officials that Cleary's earlier contact on Dragons fullback Jack Bird did not satisfy the definition of a shoulder charge.

Dragons playmaker Adam Clune was also charged for dangerous contact on Cleary as he was kicking in the 46th minute - an incident that did not attract a penalty from the match officials.

Meanwhile Luai was issued a grade one careless high tackle charge for a shot on Dragons forward Josh McGuire in the 3rd minute of the game.

Both Panthers players face monetary penalties only and will be available to face South Sydney Rabbitohs on Friday.
