Widnes Vikings: Hep Cahill banned for rest of season

Widnes Vikings forward Hep Cahill will be banned for the final two games of the Super League season after being sent off at Warrington on Thursday.

The back-rower was dismissed for a late and high tackle on Wolves full-back Brett Hodgson and was subsequently charged by the Rugby Football League.

Cahill, 26, submitted an early guilty plea to his Grade C charge.

Despite playing for more than half of the game with 12 men, the Vikings won 16-6 against their local rivals.

Denis Betts' side, who lie 11th in Super League, host Hull KR on Sunday before rounding off their season at Salford City Reds on 6 September.
