Johnson to back Proctor at NRL judiciary

Proctor became the first player in the NRL's 112-year history to be sent off for biting and the Gold Coast forward will face the NRL judiciary on Tuesday night.

Proctor will deny the charge but faces a lengthy suspension if found guilty.

Johnson blew up on field over the incident but then later made up with his New Zealand teammate and said he would not pursue the matter.

Johnson has since taken to social media to reiterate his stance and to "clear the air" on the incident which split the rugby league community.

Wade Graham guilty at NRL judiciary

Graham opted to challenge his potential ban at the NRL judiciary in an attempt to play in next Wednesday's crucial second State of Origin match in Brisbane, but after a lengthy hearing in Sydney, the jury found Graham guilty.

"Obviously I'm very disappointed that I miss out on the game. There are not really words to describe how disappointing it is," Graham said.

"I though we went in there and put forward a good argument, and I thought it was a fair case. Unfortunately the decision didn't go my way tonight.

McKendry cops two, Napa to challenge

Penrith's Sam McKendry will miss two matches after pleading guilty to a shoulder charge, while Roosters prop Dylan Napa will challenge his careless high tackle charge at the NRL judiciary on Wednesday.

McKendry will miss the Panthers' upcoming matches against Manly and South Sydney over the hit on Melbourne's Cameron Munster late in the Panthers' loss to the Storm on Saturday night.

Raiders duo Shannon Boyd and Jack Wighton are also suspended this week after pleading guilty to a shoulder charge and making contact with an official respectively.
