Three NSW players will miss at least one NRL game through suspension while Ryan Hoffman and Justin Hodges have both been ruled out of this weekend's action as clubs count the cost of the interstate series.
Hoffman will undergo scans on his suspected torn calf on Thursday but is likely to miss multiple games for the Warriors.
Broncos coach Wayne Bennett will rest Hodges while his other four Queensland stars - Corey Parker, Sam Thaiday, Darius Boyd and Matt Gillett – will all play.
Dragons lock Trent Merrin will miss four weeks for his ugly spear tackle on Corey Parker, ruling him out until Round 22.
Knights enforcer Beau Scott has been rubbed out for a week for his dangerous throw on Cameron Smith, meaning he'll miss Friday's clash against the Raiders.
Cowboys prop James Tamou also took an early plea for his high shot on Jacob Lillyman and will miss North Queensland's Round 19 clash against Manly after the bye.
