Catalan Dragons prop Jeff Lima has been banned for four matches after admitting a Grade D striking with the shoulder offence against Featherstone Rovers.

The 32-year-old was sent off for a late challenge on Rovers half-back Remy Marginet in the second half of Sunday's Challenge Cup sixth-round tie.

Meanwhile, St Helens captain Jon Wilkin has been suspended for one game.

Wilkin pleaded guilty to a Grade B offence for striking York's Adam Dent in Saints' 46-6 Challenge Cup victory.

Two Leigh Centurions players have also received bans for offences in their Championship game against Halifax, in which four players were sent off.

Tom Armstrong received a one-game suspension for headbutting, while Kurt Haggerty has been banned for two games for a Grade C striking offence.

Halifax second-rower Dane Manning has been fined £100 after being found guilty of punching a Centurions player.
