Penrith have avoided any further grand final pain, with James Fisher-Harris set to escape a ban for a late tackle on Brandon Smith.
The Panthers prop was put on report for the first-half shot on Smith after he passed the ball, allowing Melbourne to kick a penalty goal in their 26-20 win.
Fisher-Harris was handed a grade-one dangerous contact charge on Monday, meaning he will avoid a ban with an early guilty plea.
Had the New Zealand international been given a suspension, the ban would have carried over into the start of next season.
The 24-year-old was the only player charged out of the grand final.
