Wigan Warriors pair Josh Charnley and Taulima Tautai will miss the Challenge Cup semi-final against Hull FC after both were given two-match suspensions.

Both players will miss Friday's Super League fixture against St Helens, as well as the semi-final on 29 July.

Charnley, 25, pleaded guilty to Grade C contact with a match official in their 18-16 defeat by Leeds Rhinos.

Tautai, 28, was found guilty of a Grade B dangerous contact on Adam Cuthbertson in the same game on 15 July.

The duo have both been given a £300 fine in addition to their suspensions.

Charnley, who will cross codes to join Sale Sharks at the end of the season, has scored 19 tries in 23 appearances and is Wigan's top try-scorer this campaign.
