However, the 30-year-old will now be in front of the judiciary on Tuesday evening to play against Brisbane in the historic duel of his team on Friday evening.

“The Dolphins will aim to reduce the classification so that Kaufusi can play against the Broncos in the Battle of Brisbane Blockbuster on Friday,” said the club in a statement.

“Kaufusi would only be finished with a fine, while his suspension is increased from three to four weeks if the challenge is unsuccessful.”

It will be a busy night at the league headquarters, in which the Jahrome Hughes also decides to apply for a downgrading for his protégé.

The Stormddack was quoted for dangerous contacts after he had entered his shoulder while he had put Taah’s Boyd under kick during the defeat of his team on Saturday.

In the meantime, Fletcher Baker is trapped between the hearing of Kaufusi and Hughes after not guilty due to a negligent charges against Campbell Graham.
