Minichiello to fight striking charge

15:16 AEST Tue Aug 21 2012

Sydney Roosters fullback Anthony Minichiello will face the judiciary on Wednesday night in a bid to reach an NRL milestone this season.

Minichiello was hit with a grade three striking charge for his high shot on Canberra fullback Josh Dugan which resulted in a 75th minute send-off on Saturday, ruling him out for two weeks with a guilty plea.

But with just two rounds left in the regular season that leave the classy No.1 stranded on 249 games, with the Roosters out of finals contention.

Minichiello is risking a three-week ban should he fight the charge and lose, but a successful challenge at the judiciary could allow him to face Wests Tigers at Allianz Stadium on Sunday.

Meanwhile, St George Illawarra's Daniel Vidot will be free to face the Warriors this weekend if he takes the early guilty plea on a fighting charge from Monday night's clash with North Queensland.

Vidot sparked an all-in brawl in the 54th minute when he took exception to a tackle by Cowboys prop James Tamou.

And Melbourne prop Brian Norrie will miss no football after taking the early guilty plea on his grade one dangerous contact (forearm) charge.
