Melbourne rookie Dane Nielsen can escape with a one match ban for the high tackle which saw him sent from the field in Sunday's NRL win over Wests Tigers.

Nielsen was charged with a grade four careless high tackle for his 77th minute hit on Tigers winger Beau Ryan, referee Ashley Klein showing little hesitation in sending the 24-year-old centre from the field.

Despite the tough grading, Nielsen will miss only one match with an early guilty plea or two matches if he unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the NRL judiciary on Wednesday night.

The Storm have until midday Tuesday to enter their plea.
