Sam Kasiano pleads his case to Corey Parker after an ugly incident.

NRL match review committee coordinator Michael Buettner says Sam Kasiano's lashing out at Corey Parker from the Bulldogs' Round 24 loss to Brisbane warranted a two-match ban.

Bulldogs prop Kasiano pleaded guilty to a grade two charge of dangerous contact to the head or neck, and will miss the final two rounds of the regular season ahead of the NRL finals series.

"Sam Kasiano made direct contact with his boot to the face of Corey Parker, the Broncos back-rower," Buettner said.

"The match review committee deemed his actions as careless, with facial lacerations [caused] to Corey Parker's face, and the force [was] considered moderate."

Knights winger Nathan Ross, Eels duo Rory O'Brien and Bevan French and Dragons centre Taane Milne were the other players charged from Round 24 ahead of Monday night's game between the Rabbitohs and Sharks.
