Only one player has received a ban following the latest action of Super League.

Castleford’s George Lawler has received a three-match ban following the club’s victory over Toulouse.

Lee Radford’s side claimed their second league win of the season so far with a 32-6 score at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Lawler, 26, will miss Castleford’s next three games, charged with a Grade C Dangerous Throw. He will miss the club’s Challenge Cup quarter finals clash against Hull KR at Craven Park.

He will also miss their fixtures against Wakefield and Leeds in Super League.

Two others charged

St Helens back-rower Curtis Sironen was charged with a Grade A High Tackle but received a zero match penalty notice.

Hull KR’s Sam Wood also received a zero match penalty notice for a Grade A Late Hit on Passer.

Jake Connor and Liam Sutcliffe received cautions for Other Contrary Behaviour and Dangerous Throw respectively.

Casualty Ward

England international Jordan Abdull will be available for selection in Friday’s Challenge Cup clash against Castleford.

The half-back has overcome his ear infection which ruled him out of last week’s 34-18 win over Warrington.

Greg Eden should be fit to face his former club Hull KR on Friday night. He left the field at half-time against Toulouse.

Wigan face a nervous wait to find out the extend of the injuries to regular starters Willie Isa (shoulder) and Liam Marshall (hamstring). The pair picked up the knocks in last Thursday’s 19-18 win over Hull.

However, centre Iain Thornley made his return from injury for the club’s reserves at the weekend whilst star full-back Bevan French made his first appearance in 10 months last week.

Prop Kane Evans and centre Carlos Tuimavave missed last week’s match at Wigan through injuries, but coach Brett Hodgson says they won’t be out for long.

Salford Red Devils duo Dan Sarginson and James Greenwood will play no further part in the 2022 season, confirmed coach Paul Rowley.
