Snowden and Vaughan accept bans
Newcastle forward Kade Snowden will miss two weeks after pleading guilty to two separate high tackle charges against the Tigers, while Raiders forward Paul Vaughan will also spend a week on the sidelines for a crusher tackle in Canberra's loss to the Broncos on Monday night.
Snowden entered early guilty pleas to high tackles on Curtis Sironen and Bodene Thompson at the weekend, and with loading from three separate offences in the past two years, will next be available for the Knights' Round 16 clash with Parramatta.
Vaughan meanwhile has entered an early guilty plea to a Grade 2 Dangerous Contact charge for his 41st minute tackle on Bronco Todd Lowrie, and will miss the Raiders' Round 15 home game against the Bulldogs as the Green Machine has the bye this week
Bulldogs prop Sam Kasiano will escape suspension with an early guilty plea for his Grade 1 dangerous contact challenge on Manly halfback Daly Cherry-Evans as he attempted to kick down field, while Rooster Dylan Napa will also be free to play the Knights this Saturday with an early guilty plea to a Grade 1 head slam on Melbourne's Kurt Mann.
