Wigan Warriors' Liam Farrell lands one-match ban

Liam Farrell banned for Wigan Warriors clash with Leeds Rhinos

Wigan's Liam Farrell has been banned for one match after pleading guilty to committing a dangerous tackle on Huddersfield centre Leroy Cudjoe.

The Warriors back-row forward will now miss his side's Super League clash with champions Leeds on Saturday.

Farrell entered an early plea and thereby removed the need for a Rugby Football League disciplinary hearing.

The incident happened just before half-time in Sunday's Super League clash at the DW Stadium, which Wigan lost 20-16.

Farrell was also given a caution for use of the forearm on Giants hooker Luke Robinson.
