NRL: South Sydney Rabbitohs star Latrell Mitchell facing ban for 'stupid' acts in loss to NZ Warriors

Latrell Mitchell is facing a minimum of three weeks on the sidelines after being charged with dangerous contact in South Sydney's loss to the Warriors.

Mitchell appeared to extend his elbow into the head of Warriors star Shaun Johnson as the halfback attempted to tackle the Rabbitoh.

Mitchell was also cautioned for a lifting tackle on Tohu Harris.

Penrith great Greg Alexander said in commentary that the act against Johnson was "blatant", later adding: "I don't know what goes through Latrell's mind at times in a game."

South Sydney coach Jason Demetriou shared his displeasure after the match.

"They're both just stupid things," Demetriou said in his post-match press conference.

"He's just got to be better. Simple as that.

"We'll have conversations through the week. As a group we'll be honest, as we do every week." 

South Sydney currently sits on the bottom of the table with one win from five matches.
