Mata'utia charged with tripping

Newcastle Knights centre Peter Mata'utia faces a fine after being charged with tripping Bulldogs forward Raymond Faitala-Mariner on Sunday.

Mata'utia faces a fine of $1100 if he enters an early guilty plea but risks a $1500 fine if he unsuccessfully fights the charge at the NRL judiciary.

There were no other charges from the weekend's Round 18 matches.
