Inglis to fight charge

IT was the hit that sparked fierce debate about whether the shoulder charge should be banned, but Rabbitohs fullback Greg Inglis will fight the grade four ruling for his shot on the Dragons' Dean Young at the NRL judiciary tonight.

Inglis has pleaded guilty to dangerous contact which would sideline him for four games, but the Queensland and Australian representative will spend five weeks out if he is unsuccessful in getting the tackle downgraded.

With dynamic hooker Issac Luke still having two games to serve for a dangerous throw, the Rabbitohs will be desperate to have the suspension reduced given Inglis's devastating form at fullback.

Meanwhile, the hearing into Panthers five-eighth Travis Burns's high shot on Roosters prop Martin Kennedy has been adjourned until next week, after Penrith confirmed they will dispute the hit was intentional.

Burns has already accepted a three-match ban for a chicken wing tackle on Roosters forward Mose Masoe in the same game.

The 28-year-old risks copping another 12 weeks for contesting his grade three intentional high tackle charge and asking for it to be re-classified as a reckless high tackle.
