Pirtek Parramatta Eels centre Willie Tonga has today been charged with a Grade 1 Dangerous Throw for his tackle on the Bulldogs' Josh Reynolds at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.


The charge carries a penalty of 125 points, meaning that Tonga will be free to play in round 21 if he enters an early guilty plea, and may miss up to one week if he challenges the charge but is found guilty.


The Pirtek Parramatta Eels will consider their response to the charge.
