Hull FC forward Franklin Pele has received another suspension following the weekend’s Super League action, the Rugby Football League have confirmed.

Pele, who had only just returned from a three-match ban, will miss Hull’s Challenge Cup tie this weekend after being handed another one-match suspension following an incident in their heavy defeat to Leigh.

Pele was sin-binned for the incident and has now received a Grade C Dangerous Contact charge, and a one-match penalty notice.

He is, however, the only player to receive a suspension this week. Four players have been charged in total, with Nu Brown hit with a £250 fine following a Grade B Dangerous Contact charge.

Salford’s Amir Bourouh also received the same punishment for the same charge, while Huddersfield fullback Jake Connor was also fined £250. Connor was charged with a Grade B Striking offence in their defeat to Hull Kingston Rovers on Saturday afternoon – but has not been suspended.
