Castleford Tigers star Rangi Chase (pictured) has been suspended for two matches after being found guilty of a reckless strike during Sunday’s 14-12 Super League win over champions Leeds.

Chase was charged over a tackle that knocked out his England team-mate Zak Hardaker and was also fined £300 when he appeared in front of the Rugby Football League’s disciplinary committee last night.

He will miss Castleford’s game at Bradford Bulls on Saturday and their home match against Catalan Dragons on Sunday week.
