McGuire was charged with a grade-one minor contrary conduct charge for stomping on the foot of Melbourne big man Tim Glasby in the 78th minute of the game.

The 28-year-old was hit with a $1500 fine which will be reduced to $1100 with an early guilty plea on the back of his clean record.

It means McGuire will have to tread on thin ice ahead of Queensland's second State of Origin clash with the Blues on June 24.

Broncos game-winner was forward: Sharks

  Broncos game-winner was forward: Sharks Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan believes Brisbane captain Darius Boyd's pass for Corey Oates' game-winning try was forward by five metres.Cronulla coach Shane Flanagan believes NRL referees erred in failing to call a forward pass in the lead-up to Brisbane winger Corey Oates' game-winning try on Saturday night.

Broncos lock Josh McGuire . McGuire also said dynamic forward Tevita Pangai jnr would be given "every opportunity" to prove his fitness after suffering a tear in the sheath surrounding the hamstring muscle against the Wests Tigers.

But this was also a win for Brisbane ’s forwards . Cronulla’s big-name pack led by Andrew Fifita, Wade Graham and Luke Lewis were belted in midfield as Broncos duo Josh McGuire and Matt Gillett charged for a combined 286 metres.

The lock-forward is also free to travel south to play against Cronulla in his team's round 15 clash on Saturday.

The Broncos hard nut, who was jokingly described by Phil Gould on Channel Nine'sSunday Football as "not liking people," has played 185 games for the club and nine matches for the Maroons.

McGuire's teammate Tevita Pangai junior was not charged after being placed on report for a tackle on Melbourne's Nelson Asofa-Solomona in the second half.

In other judiciary news, Gold Coast Titans prop Jarrod Wallace will miss his side's round 15 clash against the Bulldogs after taking the early guilty plea for a dangerous contact charge.

The suspension isn't ideal for Wallace, who put in a lacklustre performance in the first Origin match, casting doubts over whether he will be selected for game two - as the clash at Belmore would have been his last chance to show Kevin Walters why he should maintain his spot.

Canberra forward Charlie Gubb has also elected to take the guilty plea for a dangerous contact charge and will miss one match.

Bennett approached to join Sydney club: report .
Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett has reportedly been approached to coach a rival NRL club, if the Broncos end up signing Storm coach Craig Bellamy. The Broncos have reportedly tabled a four-year offer worth $5 million for Bellamy to join the Broncos from 2019, despite seven-time premiership-winner Wayne Bennett having a year to run on his deal.The Broncos have consistently denied an offer is on the table, however, admitted they sat down with Bellamy as they attempt to map out their future post-Bennett.
