Featherstone Rovers prop Paul Wood has been handed a six-match suspension.

Wood was banned for a total of six games at tonight’s RFL disciplinary meeting after being found guilty of a Grade B headbutt and Grade E gouging in the Summer Bash clash against Leigh in which he was sent off.

His fellow forward Reni Maitua has been suspended for one game after being found guilty of a Grade B high tackle in the same match against Leigh in Blackpool last month.
