St George Illawarra prop Leeson Ah Mau faces a three-match ban for a high shot that forced Wests Tigers' Tim Grant off the field in a neck brace.

Ah Mau has been handed a grade three careless high tackle charge in the wake of Wests Tigers' 25-12 NRL win over the Dragons at ANZ Stadium on Sunday.

Grant was taken off in a medicab after he lay motionless following the Ah Mau tackle midway in the first half and did not return to the field.
