The RFL's match review panel charged Sene-Lefao with grade B dangerous contact in last Friday's win over Leigh Centurions.

Wigan's Jackson Hastings received a caution for dangerous contact in their win over Leeds Rhinos but was not charged and is available this week.

No Rhinos or Wakefield Trinity players were charged following Betfred Super League round three.

But Hull KR's Mikey Lewis will sit out Friday's visit of Leeds after being charged with grade B striking against Huddersfield Giants and issued with a one-match penalty notice.

Hull's Jack Brown was charged with grade B 'other contrary behaviour' and suspended for one game, so misses Friday's home clash with Trinity.

Leigh's ex-Rhinos forward Nathan Peteru avoided a ban after being charged with grade A dangerous contact against Tigers.

The other player charged following last weekend's matches was Salford Devils' Andy Ackers.

He received a one-match penalty notice for a grade B intentional trip in Saturday's defeat at Catalans Dragons.
