St Helens star Morgan Knowles has been handed a one-match ban for a Grade B dangerous contact charge.

The Wales international committed a Grade B dangerous contact offence in Saints’ emphatic 62-16 win over Hull FC at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Easter Monday.

Knowles is set to miss Sunday’s home game against Catalans Dragons through suspension.

The 22-year-old, who has earned four caps for Wales, received huge praise from Saints coach Justin Holbrook following their Good Friday victory over rivals Wigan.

Holbrook said: “For me, Morgan is the most underrated player in Super League.

“He is not underrated in our side because of how much we value him but when you talk about Great Britain tours, he is the first player I’d pick – he is that good.

“He has worked so hard from the start of pre-season and he is a pleasure to coach. Our whole forward pack is playing really well and he is a big part of that.”

No other players have been banned following Round 12 of Super League.
