Lafai cops one-match ban

Bulldogs centre Tim Lafai has failed in his bid to have a high tackle charge downgraded at the judiciary on Tuesday night and will miss this week's clash with Penrith.

Lafai was attempting to incur just the fine that comes with a grade one careless high tackle charge, but with a grade two charge he won't take the field again until next season and ends the year with 50 carry-over points to his name. 

His replacement will be confirmed later in the week.
