The centre was charged with a Grade C Dangerous Contact following Wakefield's 58-0 loss, meaning he will be absent for this weekend's Challenge Cup clash against the same opponents.

Sam Tomkins and Sam Moa will both be missing for Catalans after the pair were handed bans.

Tomkins is suspended for one fixture for a Grade A Trip while Moa has been sidelined for two games after being charged with a Grade C High tackle.

Meanwhile, St Helens winger Tommy Makinson is facing a suspension of up to 8 games after being charged with Grade F Other Contrary Behaviour by the RFL's Disciplinary Panel.

The charge comes after Saints defeated Castleford Tigers 10-0 at the Totally Wicked Stadium, with the Grade F charge carrying a ban of eight games or a suspension period.

The incident, which was placed on report after Makinson allegedly grabbed the testicles of Liam Watts in the 13th minute, has been refereed to a tribunal.
