THE RFL disciplinary dealt Castleford Tigers a blow, but handed a boost to Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

Tigers’ Scott Moore was banned for one game after admitting making Grade B dangerous contact to the limbs of St Helens’ Mose Masoe in the 61st minute of last Friday’s match at Langtree Park.

Moore will miss Tigers’ home fixture against Wigan Warriors in two days’ time.

Saints duo Travis Burns and Kyle Amor were also suspended and will sit out Friday’s trip to Wakefield.

Burns was banned for one match for a careless high tackle on Tigers’ Justin Carney in the 23rd minute.

He pleaded not guilty to the original charge of making a Grade B reckless tackle, but was found guilty of the lesser offence.

Amor, a former Wakefield player, pleaded guilty to making Grade C dangerous contact to the head, neck or spinal column of Castleford three-quarter Jordan Tansey in the 60th minute and was suspended for two games.

All three players were also fined £300.

Meanwhile, former player Iain Morrison has joined Featherstone Rovers’ backroom staff.

Morrison, a prop-forward, played for Rovers in 2010 and 2011, scoring three tries in 28 appearances. His other clubs included Widnes Vikings, London Broncos, Huddersfield Giants, Hull KR, Halifax, Oxford and York City Knights.
