Not guilty plea risks 10-week ban

BULLDOGS forward James Graham risks up to 10 weeks out after pleading not guilty to a charge of allegedly biting Storm fullback Billy Slater on the left ear in Sunday's grand final.

Graham was charged with an ungraded dangerous contact offence, the incident serious enough to be referred straight to an NRL judiciary hearing tonight.

Storm pair Sisa Waqa and Todd Lowrie and Canterbury's Josh Reynolds yesterday all made early guilty pleas on fighting charges. Reynolds escaped suspension while Waqa and Lowrie will serve one-match suspensions in next year's trials.
