Brisbane lock Josh McGuire is facing a maximum $1500 fine for treading on the foot of potential Queensland State of Origin teammate Tim Glasby.
McGuire was on Monday charged with a grade one contrary conduct offence stemming out of Brisbane's 32-16 NRL loss to Melbourne on Sunday.
The 78th minute incident went unnoticed at the time but the NRL's match review committee spotted McGuire forcibly step on Glasby's foot as he attempted to get up from a tackle.
McGuire faces a $1500 fine for the incident, however, that can be reduced to $1100 with an early guilty plea.
It comes just a week before the pair could be named together to try and save the Maroons' State of Origin series, if Glasby earns a recall for Game II in Sydney.
