Sam Kasiano is in danger of missing Canterbury's NRL crunch clash with Manly on Friday after he was slugged with a grade two high tackle charge by the match review committee on Monday.

The giant Kiwi prop was placed on report after catching Parramatta's Fuifui Moimoi with a swinging arm across the jaw in the opening hit-up of the Bulldogs' 32-12 win over the Eels on Friday.

The challenge saw Moimoi spend the rest of the game on the sidelines, and Parramatta reduced to 16 players for the remaining 79 minutes of the game.

Canterbury coach Des Hasler said after the game he feared Kasiano may be punished, and the Bulldogs have until Tuesday to decide if they will fight the charge at a judiciary hearing on Wednesday.
