Wakefield Trinity Wildcats prop Justin Poore escapes ban

Justin Poore and Richard Agar

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats prop Justin Poore has escaped a ban following his sending off in the Boxing Day friendly defeat by Leeds Rhinos.

Poore, 27, was dismissed just 18 minutes into his debut for punching Rhinos front row Ryan Bailey.

The Australian entered an early guilty plea, meaning he loses the right to do so again for the next 12 months.

Wakefield start the Super League season with a trip to Bradford Bulls on Saturday, 3 February.
