Hull FC back-rower Sika Manu and Wigan front-rower Romain Navarrete have received bans by the match review panel.

Tonga captain Manu has been charged with a Grade C dangerous contact in FC’s win over Widnes Vikings on the weekend.

He has been handed a three-match penalty notice and will miss their next three games against St Helens, Wakefield Trinity and Hull Kingston Rovers.

Navarrete will serve a one-match ban after being charged with a Grade B dangerous contact in the Warriors’ win over Leeds Rhinos. He will miss Friday’s game against Warrington Wolves.

Elsewhere, Huddersfield youngster Matty English hasn’t received a suspension after originally being cited for a Grade A dangerous contact.

St Helens full-back Ben Barba and Castleford Tigers half-back Jamie Ellis are free to play after receiving no penalty notices for Grade A light contact.
