Newcastle’s Kade Snowden has been suspended for two weeks by the NRL judiciary while Canberra’s Paul Vaughan will miss one week.
Newcastle front-rower Kade Snowden has been suspended for two weeks for a pair of high tackles in his side’s NRL loss to the Wests Tigers on Sunday.
Snowden took the early guilty plea to a grade-two careless high tackle on Curtis Sironen and a grade-one charge for the same offence on Bodene Thompson.
He will miss the Knights’ next two games, against the Sydney Roosters and North Queensland.
Canberra forward Paul Vaughan will miss one week after pleading guilty to a “crusher” tackle on Brisbane’s Todd Lowrie on Monday night.
Canterbury’s Sam Kasiano and the Roosters’ Dylan Napa are free to play after they opted for early pleas to separate dangerous contact charges.
