Merrin faces month ban after Origin hit

NSW forwards Trent Merrin, Beau Scott and James Tamou are all facing time on the sidelines following the Blues’ massive 52-6 loss to Queensland in the State of Origin decider.

Merrin is facing a four-week stint out after being charged with a grade two dangerous throw on Corey Parker in the first half on Wednesday. Even if the St George Illawarra back-rower takes the early guilty plea he will be slapped with a four-game ban due to carry-over points.

Tamou will miss one game if he takes the early plea after being charged with a grade one striking for a clumsy effort on Jacob Lillyman in the second half.

Scott will also sit out one NRL match if he pleads early after being charged with a grade one dangerous throw on Maroons skipper Cameron Smith.
