Dugan to miss Roosters clash over shoulder charge

DRAGONS fullback Josh Dugan is set to miss Saturday's match against the Roosters after being cited for a shoulder charge against Panthers counterpart Matt Moylan.

Dugan, who played for NSW in Origin II but is expected to be replaced by Jarryd Hayne for the decider on July 17, risks two weeks out if he challenges the charge.

Cowboys prop Ashton Sims will miss at least two games after he was charged with dangerous contact for a knee to the head of Sharks full-back Nathan Stapleton. The grade two offence carries a three-match ban, but Sims can reduce that to two with an early guilty plea.
