The Rugby Football League’s match review panel have given one-match bans to Wigan captain Tommy Leuluai and Leeds hooker Brad Dwyer.
Former New Zealand international Tommy Leuluai will miss Thursday’s clash with Hull. He was charged with a Grade B dangerous contact on James Greenwood in Wigan’s 20-0 win over Salford last Friday.
Salford coach Paul Rowley revealed after the game that they would be without Greenwood for at least a couple of months following the challenge.
Rowley said: “James has a suspected syndesmosis, I think it is called lisfranc.
“He will be out for quite a bit of time. I would suspect he’d be out for a couple of months at the minimum so that’s both of our back-rowers gone now.
“He can’t get any continuity James. I don’t think he’s done three games in a row for something like two-and-a-half years so its not good. It’s not good for him and I feel really sorry for him but it’s also not good for the team.”
Meanwhile, Leeds hooker Dwyer was given a one-match suspension for a Grade B trip in their 40-16 defeat to Castleford. He will miss Friday’s clash against champions St Helens.
Alrix Da Costa (Catalans), Mike Cooper (Warrington) and Daryl Clark (Warrington) received Grade A charges but will not face suspension.
