Wade Graham charged for high hit

NSW forward Wade Graham faces missing a long-awaited State of Origin debut next week after being charged by the NRL match review committee.

Graham has been charged with a grade-one careless high tackle on North Queensland’s Johnathan Thurston, and carryover points means he will only be able to play in next week’s Origin II if he can beat the charge at a judiciary hearing.

In better news for the Blues, forward James Tamou escaped being sanctioned for an apparent shoulder charge on NSW teammate Andrew Fifita in the same match on Monday night.
