Featherstone Rovers will be without Samoan international centre Misi Taulapapa for their next two matches against Swinton Lions and Leigh Centurions.

Taulapapa has been given a two-match suspension after his early guilty plea was accepted by the RFL disciplinary committee for a dangerous throw on Dewsbury Rams forward Joel Farrell in the 34th minute of the recent Championship game at Tetley’s Stadium that Rovers won 31-0.
