Warrington Wolves half-back Declan Patton has been banned for five matches following his red card in the Super League loss at Hull FC on 2 March.

Patton, 22, was dismissed for a reckless high tackle on Hull winger Bureta Faraimo in the 21-12 defeat.

Hull prop Liam Watts was given a three-match suspension as a result of his sending-off in the same match.

Watts was shown a red card in the latter stages of the match for a headbutt on Warrington's Dom Crosby.

Meanwhile, Warrington full-back Jack Johnson will miss the rest of the 2018 season after breaking his leg in training.
