Leeds Rhinos and Wakefield Trinity both avoided charges, but Castleford Tigers forward George Lawler is facing a three-match lay-off.

Lawler was charged with a grade C dangerous throw in Castleford's win over Toulouse Olympique last Friday.

The three-game penalty notice means he will miss this Friday's Betfred Challenge Cup quarter-final at his previous club Hull KR and the Easter derbies away to Wakefield Trinity and home against Rhinos.
