Dragons winger Mikaele Ravalawa has been banned for four matches after unsuccessfully challenging a shoulder charge citation.

Ravalawa was cited with a grade one shoulder charge for his 77th-minute challenge on Elliott Whitehead in his side's win over the Raiders on Saturday.

With two prior similar charges this year, the load meant that Ravalawa was facing three weeks with an early plea but risked a four-week ban to challenge the charge in a judiciary hearing at Rugby League Central last night.

Ravalawa is expected to return for the Dragons in Round 20 when they meet the Rabbitohs.
