Three players to be suspended

St George Illawarra's Michael Howell, the Bulldogs' Corey Hughes and Cronulla's Michael Sullivan will miss matches after being suspended by the National Rugby League judiciary.

All three have entered early guilty pleas to offences and received one week suspensions.

St George Illawarra second rower Brent Kite and Warriors forward Awen Guttenbeil have avoided suspension after entering early guilty pleas to grade two careless high tackle charges.
