Manly back-rower Justin Horo is facing up to four weeks on the sideline after being charged by the NRL match review committee for a crusher tackle on West Tigers youngster Mitchell Moses.

Horo was on Monday slapped with a grade-three dangerous contact charge for placing unnecessary pressure on the head and neck of Moses in the 11th minute of Friday's 40-8 demolition of the joint-venture.

He will miss three games with an early guilty plea, or four if  he unsuccessfully challenges the charge.

Wests Tigers skipper Robbie Farah copped a grade-one dangerous throw charge on the Sea Eagles' Josh Starling in the same match at Brookvale Oval.

He will escape suspension with an early plea, or risks a one-game ban if he challenges.
