The incident occurred in the 14th minute of the clash when Feki was on the verge of scoring in the corner until Slater shoulder charged him over the sideline.
Slater was penalised for the tackle with the match review committee subsequently slapping him with the charge which carries a base penalty of 200 points, meaning he needs to absolved of the incident.
Slater arrived at League Central at 4:30pm ahead of the hearing which starts at 6pm.
