LEIGH forward Kurt Haggerty has been banned for two games after pleading guilty to striking Wakefield full-back Lee Smith last Saturday.

He was also fined £100 for the Grade B offence so will be unavailable for the forthcoming games against Sheffield Eagles and Halifax.

Wakefield’s Michael Sio accepted a one-match ban for a grade B dangerous tackle on Leigh full-back Gregg McNally in the same game which Wakefield won 17-16.
