Salford forward Steve Rapira has issued an early-guilty plea to a charge of making dangerous contact, meaning he will suspended for one game.

The former New Zealand Warriors front rower was hit with the grade B charged after an incident during the Red Devils' 32-18 defeat at Widnes last Thursday in front of the Sky Sports cameras.

Rapira - who joined the Super League club on a two-year contract - will now sit out Salford's home game with Warrington on Friday night.

Meanwhile, Catalan Dragons second rower Louis Anderson also submitted an early plea to a similar offence during his team's 56-14 loss at Wakefield. The former New Zealand international will miss the trip to St Helens in round five.
