Huddersfield Giants' Tommy Lee given two-match ban

Huddersfield Giants utility player Tommy Lee has been given a two-match ban after he submitted an early guilty plea for a high tackle.

Lee, 24, was put on report for his tackle on Warrington's Lee Briers in his side's 32-22 defeat.

He was charged with the grade C offence by the RFL's match review panel but will not now need to face a disciplinary hearing.

He will now be unavailable for games against London Broncos and St Helens.

The option to take an early 'guilty' plea is available to any player who has been charged with a grade A to C offence and who has not been found guilty of any other misconduct in the previous 12 months.
