Leigh Centurions winger Adam Higson has been suspended for five games following his red card at the Magic Weekend.

Higson, 30, was sent off for a high and late tackle on Salford's Gareth O'Brien during Leigh's 36-22 defeat in Newcastle on Sunday.

An Independent Match Review Panel had charged him with a Grade E high tackle, which carried a possible ban of four to eight matches.

Higson was also fined £300 at a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday.
