Two Castleford Tigers players have been handed a suspension ruling them out of Saturday’s Magic Weekend derby against Leeds Rhinos.

Captain Paul McShane and prop Nathan Massey were both banned for one match over incidents in last Friday’s defeat of Huddersfield Giants.

Former Rhinos hooker McShane was charged by the RFL’s match review panel with a grade B dangerous throw after being sin-binned.

Rhinos avoided any disciplinary action following their win at Hull on Saturday, but centre Harry Newman and forwards Bodene Thompson, Zane Tetevano, Tom Holroyd and Muizz Mustapha are all still serving bans from previous games.

Three Hull players were charged with grade B offences in their 62-16 loss to Rhinos and will miss the next two games.

Kane Evans was charged with a high tackle, Jordan Johnston a dangerous throw and Ligi Sao ‘other contrary behaviour’.
