Warrington forward Sita Akaoula is set to miss the Challenge Cup final after being handed a one-match ban.

Akaoula, 26, was charged with dangerous contact in the defeat to Castleford on Friday and as he has previously committed the offence this season, was given a penalty notice for the Grade A charge.

Opponents Catalans received no charges following their loss to Wigan at the weekend.

The two sides meet at Wembley this Saturday.
