The National Rugby League agreed to a request from Manly to bring forward John Hopoate's judiciary hearing to Tuesday.

Other judiciary cases will still be heard on Wednesday night, unless the clubs contesting any charges specifically request an early hearing.

Manly winger Hopoate faces a lengthy suspension for his high shot on Cronulla forward Keith Galloway in an NRL match at Brookvale Oval.

In other cases NZ Warriors veteran Ruben Wiki could be facing a lengthy suspension after being charged with a grade three careless high tackle during his team's win over Brisbane.

Three St George Illawarra players have been charged following their heavy loss to Melbourne at the weekend.

Centre Albert Torrens is charged with a grade two careless high tackle, hooker Michael Ennis was charged with a grade one careless high tackle and prop Ashton Sims with grade one contrary conduct.

Melbourne forward Alex Chan is on a grade two striking charge from the same match.

Cronulla's Greg Bird faces a grade one dangerous throw charge as does Parramatta's Mark Riddell.
