Burns facing five week suspension

North Queensland utility Travis Burns is facing up to a five-week suspension after he was charged over two separate incidents in his NRL side's loss to the Wests Tigers.

Burns was slapped with a grade two careless high tackle on Tigers winger Taniela Tuiaki and a grade one dangerous throw on centre Chris Lawrence, both in the first half of Saturday's 40-16 loss.

Burns will miss four matches with early guilty pleas to both charges and risks missing five games if he unsuccessfully contests the charge at the NRL judiciary.

Canberra prop Scott Logan also faces up to a month on the sidelines after being charged with a grade two dangerous throw in Saturday's loss to Parramatta.

Logan will miss three matches with an early guilty plea or four games if he is found guilty at the judiciary.

Roosters forward Mickey Paea was charged with a grade two careless high tackle on Josh Perry in his team's 42-0 loss to Manly and will miss one match with an early guilty plea.

Penrith's Maurice Blair was charged with a grapple tackle and Roosters centre Brent Grose copped a grade one dangerous throw charge but both can escape suspension with an early guilty pleas.

The match review panel found Brisbane's David Stagg had no case to answer for the stray elbow that left Wendell Sailor with a fractured cheekbone on Friday night.
