NRL review charges Snowden, Heighington

NSW State of Origin hopefuls Kade Snowden and Chris Heighington have been charged by the NRL's match review committee with grade one offences.

Cronulla prop, Snowden was charged with making dangerous contact with St George Illawarra five-eighth Jamie Soward while he was in the act of kicking.

Snowden is likely to fight the charge because he'll miss one match whether he makes an early guilty plea or if he contests and is found guilty at the judiciary.

The tough frontrower has received heavy backing to make the Blues side for game three and will be hoping he can escape penalty and impress against Queensland bookend Matt Scott and the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday night.

Wests Tigers secondrower Heighington has been staking his Origin claim for the past two seasons and he'll be available for Friday's clash with the Dragons if he takes the early guilty plea to a dangerous throw charge picked up against Canberra on Sunday.

Heighington has said he'll use his British passport and consider playing for England if he continues to be overlooked for his state.
