Kade Snowden will miss his club’s next two games after accepting two high-tackle charges.
Newcastle Knights front-rower Kade Snowden will be sidelined for two-weeks after taking the early guilty plea for two high tackle charges during Sunday’s match against the Wests Tigers.
Snowden was charged with a grade two high tackle against Curtis Sironen and a grade one high tackle on Bodene Thompson.
The club risked a three-game suspension if he challenged the charges at the judiciary and was found guilty.
It means the 27-year-old will now miss the Knights’ clashes against the Sydney Roosters and North Queensland Cowboys, and will return for the round 16 match against the Parramatta Eels.
