Newcastle winger Nathan Ross is set to miss next week's NRL clash with South Sydney after being charged for a dangerous throw on Chris McQueen.

Ross was hit with a grade one dangerous throw citation by the match review committee for a tackle on the Gold Coast back-rower in Saturday's 26-6 loss to the Titans.

He will miss a week even with an early guilty plea and his only chance of taking on the Rabbitohs next Sunday is if he successfully challenges the charge at the judiciary.
