Canterbury foward Frank Pritchard will miss Saturday's round two match up with St George through suspension.
Pritchard was found guilty of a grade one careless high tackle at the NRL judiciary and given a one match ban following his high shot on Penrith's David Simmonds.
Simmonds had to be helped from the field and was later hospitalised after being collected in the head by Pritchard's shoulder.
Coach Des Hasler has yet to name Pritchard's replacement.
A new name, a new structure, a new knockout tournament and the same trailblazing reputation for expanded horizons will be common themes for Kingstone Press League 1 in 2015.
