Tapine was today hit with a grade one dangerous contact charge for his incident with Bulldogs hooker Michael Lichaa in the first half at Belmore Sportsground.

An early plea would usually result in a one-game suspension, however Tapine carries 85 points which would mean he risks being rubbed out for two matches.
