Starling stung twice by MRC

Sea Eagles front-rower Josh Starling has been charged with two dangerous contact charges by the NRL's match review committee after Friday night's loss to the Rabbitohs.  

The forward, who has started every game this season since arriving from Redfern, was issued with the Grade 1 charges for incidents which occured in the 59th and 63rd minute respectively.

Starling was put on report by the on-field referees for the tackle on Rabbitohs half Luke Keary, while the contact against Tyrell was picked up by the Match Review Committee.

If he takes the early guilty plea for both charges, Starling will only miss this Sunday's match against the Titans on the Gold Coast.

If he decides to accept the early plea for one but fight the other and wins, he will be free to play.
