North Queensland Cowboys star Valentine Holmes will reportedly face a one-game suspension and a $25,000 fine for posting a picture of himself with a white bag in his mouth.

28-year-old Holmes has until 5pm Wednesday to respond to a breach notice from the NRL.

News Corp reports that he will accept a one-game suspension and a $25,000 fine, while the Sydney Morning Herald reports the penalty could be up to $30,000 and at least one game on the sidelines.

News Corp also reports that Holmes is set to front the Cowboys board and will likely be handed an additional penalty by the club.
