Bronco could miss two matches over sickening hit

BRONCOS young gun Jaydn Su'a has been charged by the NRL judiciary for his cheap shot on Dragons prop Paul Vaughan in Thursday night's season opener.

Vaughan was left vomiting on the field after Su'a shoulder charged the Red V big man off the ball in the 76th minute of the Dragons 34-12 win.

Vaughan was approaching the Broncos defensive line expecting a pass from Ben Hunt when the Dragons halfback opted to go elsewhere.

Vaughan was watching the ball as he eased off his run and was completely blindsided when Su'a dropped his shoulder right into the middle of Vaughan's chest.

Vaughan vomited on the field before staggering to the sideline and vomiting again.

Su'a and the Broncos must challenge, and beat, the judiciary's grade one charge otherwise he could miss up to two matches.
