Josh McGuire charged with 80th minute 'dog shot' on James Maloney
Queensland enforcer, Josh McGuire, has been hit with a Grade 1 dangerous contact charge by the Match Review Committee.
The serial offender will spend one week on the sidelines for his late hit on NSW five-eighth, James Maloney, just seconds before full-time was called in Game 2 of the 2019 Origin series.
Due to McGuire’s long list of on-field misdemeanours over the past two years, the charge will carry a 20% loading on the standard 100 points, meaning he will miss the Cowboys match against Dragons on Friday night regardless of his plea.
Fortunately for Queensland, he will still be available for Game 3 on July 10.
