Leigh Centurions forward Jamie Acton has been banned for two games and so misses Saturday’s Challenge Cup quarter final at Warrington.

Acton was found guilty of Grade B punching in the closing stages of a recent game at Batley by the independent disciplinary tribunal last night. He had pleaded not guilty but was also fined £100.

Batley’s Tom Lillycrop who was involved in the same altercation submitted an early guilty plea and received a one-match suspension for Grade B striking.
