Hull FC forward Chris Satae has been banned for three games for a late tackle.
Satae was charged with a grade C offence by the Rugby Football League's match review panel following an incident in the Hull derby on Friday.
Detailing the reason for taking action, the charge sheet states: "A defending player makes contact with an opponent after the ball has been released by an opponent in a vulnerable position which causes excessive flexion to the head, neck or spinal column."
Salford half-back Kevin Brown was charged with a grade A dangerous contact offence from his side's win over Toronto but avoided any further action.
The panel issued cautions to St Helens forward Matty Lees and Wigan prop Ethan Havard.
