Bradford winger Gareth Raynor has been given a two-match ban after he was sent off in the Bulls' Challenge Cup defeat by Wigan.

The winger had been charged with a Grade B high tackle on Wigan's Sam Tomkins during Bradford's 22-26 fifth-round defeat at Odsal.

He will miss Bradford's home Super League game against Salford on Sunday and the trip to Harlequins on 4 June.

Tomkins was led off with concussion after scoring Wigan's second try.

Raynor, who received the ban after going before the the RFL's disciplinary committee, was issued a red card from referee Steve Ganson for the challenge on Sunday.

Former Leeds, Hull and Crusaders winger Raynor made his rugby league comeback this season with Bradford.

The four-times capped Great Britain international was jailed last May after admitting being behind a fake ink cartridge and computer game scam.
