Warrington Wolves have been dealt a further blow to their forward pack following a suspension handed to James Harrison.
The 27-year-old utility forward has received a two-match ban for Grade D dangerous contact during the club’s 23-14 defeat to Castleford at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Friday.
Harrison was sin-binned for a tackle on opposition forward Nathan Massey, who was forced to leave the action early on during Round 16.
Castleford head coach Andy Last said of Massey’s injury: “It’s a nasty one.
“He looks like he’s done some ligament damage so I don’t think we will be seeing Mass for a few weeks.”
Daryl Powell has already admitted that his forwards are doing it tough in recent weeks following the departures of Thomas Mikaele and Josh McGuire.
He was hit with a 12-match ban.
Meanwhile, 25-year-old Mikaele was granted an early release on compassionate grounds to return to Australia in April.
Harrison is the only player to receive a suspension following the latest round of action.
He will miss Super League games against Leeds and St Helens.
After being sin-binned on his debut for Hull KR, winger Fouad Yaha has been hit with a £250 fine for a Grade B high tackle.
Team-mate Yusuf Aydin was also hit with a fine for a Grade B dangerous tackle.
Will Dagger, Romain Navarrete and Ed Chamberlain were also hit with fines for respective charges.
