Canberra Raiders lock Joe Tapine is hoping the match review committee doesn't continue his stop-start season.
Tapine was put on report for a chicken-wing tackle on Melbourne Storm utility Brandon Smith just before half-time.
Tapine was one of two Raiders put on report, with winger Jordan Rapana also cited for a lifting tackle on Cameron Munster.
But Tapine's only just returned from a rib injury and he's also had thumb and ankle problems that have meant he's only played 15 games this season.
The match review committee will announce any sanctions on Sunday, when the Raiders will fly home to Canberra Airport at lunchtime.
Tapine said there was no intent in his tackle and he'd just been caught in an awkward position with tacklers preventing him from being able to pull out.
Smith completed the game.
"You're always going to be worried because you never know what the judiciary are going to do," Tapine said.
"But I had no intention or malice in it. I was just in an awkward position.
"I couldn't really pull out because I had people on me. I'll just see how it goes.
"It should be fine hopefully. We'll see."
Tapine went into the game concerned whether his fitness would hold up under finals pressure.
"It was a test on my fitness. Coming down here I hadn't played in three weeks," he said.
"I was a bit scared about my game fitness. It was a good test for me.
"[Coach Ricky Stuart] left me out there for a bit just to test my lungs.
"I was blowing in certain parts, but I was happy with my performance."
