Leigh forward Jake Emmitt will miss the games against Halifax and Wakefield.

The hard-working prop has been one of the Centurions’ stand out performers in 2015.

Emmitt has been suspended for two matches after being found guilty of using Grade C abusive language towards a match official in the win over Batley Bulldogs last month.

He pleaded not guilty when he appeared before an independent disciplinary tribunal on Wednesday and was also fined £100.
