Hull FC’s Sika Manu has been slapped with a three-match ban by the RFL Disciplinary Panel.
The back-rower was hit with a Grade C Dangerous Contact charge following the 31-24 victory over Widnes Vikings, and will sit out the next three outings for the Black and Whites.
Manu had only just returned from a knee injury that he picked up in the Challenge Cup quarter-final loss to St Helens to face the Vikings.
Hull face Huddersfield Giants, St Helens and Wakefield Trinity across the next three weeks.
