Storm player faces ban for ref contact

Melbourne Storm Toyota Cup player Sam Joe faces a possible three-game ban after being charged with contrary conduct after making contact with the referee by the NRL judiciary.

The incident took place during the Storm's encounter with Newcastle at Olympic Park on Saturday, when both sets of players were involved in an on-field melee.

The 20-year-old centre will face an automatic two-match suspension should he choose to take the early guilty plea, but will be sidelined for three games should he opt to fight the charge and lose.
