Hep Cahill's season is over after the Widnes forward accepted a two-game ban for a high tackle on Warrington's Brett Hodgson.
The former Melbourne and Crusaders back-row was sent off just before the interval during last Thursday's Super League derby win at Warrington after catching Hodgson in the face.
Cahill was charged by the Rugby Football League's match-review panel with a Grade C offence and after submitting an early-guilty plea (EGP), will sit out the Vikings' final games of the season against Hull KR and Salford.
Leeds Rhinos hooker Paul McShane has been suspended for one game after taking an EGP for a Grade B dangerous lift offence during last week's loss to Hull KR.
Huddersfield Giants duo Ukuma Ta'ai and David Faiumu and London Broncos forward Matt Cook also submitted EGPs. They escape a ban but will not be eligible to make another EGP for 12 months.
