Fiji Bati and Parramatta Eels centre Waqa Blake has escaped suspension despite being charged for a high tackle in their dramatic win over Manly.

Blake has been charged with a grade-one careless high tackle in Parramatta's 19-16 win at Bankwest Stadium on Saturday night.

However, because of the low grading and his good record he will cop a $AUD550 fine if he enters an early guilty plea or $AUD750 if he unsuccessfully challenges the charge at the judiciary.

The Eels lead the NRL Standings after claiming four wins in their opening four matches.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs will face the Dragons at 6.05 tonight in the final match of Round 4.
