New Zealand Warriors winger Michael Crockett will miss two NRL matches after pleading guilty to a high tackle that left Bulldogs winger Cameron Phelps violently ill on Sunday.
Crockett was sent off just five minutes into the 40-20 loss to the Bulldogs in Auckland for the hit, which left Phelps throwing up until 5am on Monday morning.
All four players charged from weekend matches entered early guilty pleas, with St George Illawarra forward Corey Payne to miss the Dragons' southern derby with Cronulla on Monday night.
Payne and Jason Ryles were charged with a dangerous throw in Friday night's win over Brisbane but Ryles escaped suspension because of his good disciplinary record. Queensland forward Jacob Lillyman will be free to play in Origin two next Wednesday after entering an early guilty plea for a grade one striking charge.
