St Helens winger Francis Meli has been banned for four matches for his sending-off in Saturday's Challenge Cup defeat by Hull KR.
The former New Zealand international was sent off in the 33rd minute of Saints' 26-18 fourth-round defeat at Craven Park for a high tackle on Craig Hall.
He was subsequently charged with a Grade E offence and received the minimum four-game suspension and a STG300 ($NZ544) fine when he appeared in front of the Rugby Football League's disciplinary committee in Leeds this evening.
Meli was already facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after dislocating his elbow in the tackle which caused a whiplash injury to his opponent.
Catalan Dragons hooker Ian Henderson, a former New Zealand Warriors forward, has been cleared to face Huddersfield at the Stade Gilbert Brutus on Saturday after being found not guilty of striking.
Henderson was sent off during his side's 50-12 fourth-round Cup win at Hunslet on Sunday and charged with a Grade B reckless strike.
He was eligible to submit an early-guilty plea but the club contested the charge at a hearing via Skype and found him not guilty.
