Parramatta Eels forward Ryan Matterson has been charged by the NRL Match Review Committee with a Grade One Dangerous Contact – Head/Neck following the Eels Round 20 victory over the Wests Tigers at Bankwest Stadium last night.
Matterson was charged with a Grade One Dangerous Contact – Head/Neck following a tackle on Wests Tigers Asu Kepaoa in the 65th minute of the clash.
