FEATHERSTONE Rovers winger Luke Briscoe will miss Sunday’s Super 8s Qualifiers game against Warrington Wolves at LD Nutrition Stadium.

At this evening’s RFL disciplinary hearing, Briscoe pleaded not guilty to a grade B punching charge from the Super 8s Qualifiers match at Catalans Dragons last Saturday.

He was found guilty and received a one-game suspension and was fined £100.

There was no further action taken against Josh Walters who was charged with a grade A offence of other contrary behaviour against Catalans.

There was also no further action taken against Catalans second-rower Louis Anderson who was charged with a grade A offence of punching in the second-half flare-up that led to both him and Briscoe being sin-binned.
