Taulapapa to front judiciary

7:03 pm on 25 March 2009

The Cronulla winger Misi Taulapapa will front the NRL judiciary tonight after pleading not guilty to head slamming Newcastle's Junior Sau.

Taulapapa will contest the grade one dangerous contact charge, and faces a one-match suspension if he is unable to prove his innocence.

The Auckland-born flyer will be joined at NRL headquarters by Melbourne centre Willie Isa, who has pleaded not guilty to a grade one grapple tackle charge.

Isa also faces one match on the sidelines if he can't beat the charge.
