Korbin Sims is tackled by the Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium in Round 12.

Newcastle and Fiji forward Korbin Sims will miss his nation's Test match against PNG on Saturday night at Pirtek Stadium after accepting a one-match ban for a grade 2 careless high tackle. 

The charge comes from Sims' challenge on Roosters winger Joe Burgess in the Knights Round 9 loss at Allianz Stadium.

Cronulla forward Jayson Bukuya will also miss a match after pleading guilty to a grade 1 shoulder charge on Broncos halfback Ben Hunt. 

Bukuya will miss his side's Round 10 game against the Knights. 

Warriors halfback Shaun Johnson also pleaded guilty to a grade 1 tripping charge, but will not be suspended for any matches.
