Hull FC forward Scott Taylor will miss the next three games, while Blake Austin has not been charged by the match review panel.

England international Taylor received two charges from the match review panel. He received a two-match penalty notice for a Grade C dangerous contact in their loss to Castleford Tigers, as well as a one-match penalty notice for a Grade B dangerous contact.

Taylor will miss Hull FC’s matches against Wigan Warriors, Huddersfield Giants and Leeds Rhinos.

Meanwhile, Warrington Wolves half-back Blake Austin has been told by the panel that his sin-binning for his collision with Hull KR captain Joel Tomkins was sufficient punishment and that the contact was accidental.

Tomkins was taken to hospital shortly after the incident with a serious concussion but has since been released and returned to Hull KR.

Elsewhere, Wigan Warriors captain Sean O’Loughlin and Huddersfield Giants full-back Darnel McIntosh will not face bans after being issued Grade A dangerous contact sanctions.
