Morgan Knowles has been given a one-match ban following St Helens’ Super League Grand Final victory, meaning he is set to miss England’s World Cup warm-up match against Fiji.
The forward was controversially cleared to play in the Old Trafford showpiece against Leeds Rhinos after a suspension was overturned on a second appeal.
Now Knowles has been charged with Grade A dangerous contact, for an offence in the second half of the Grand Final, and banned for one game.
Fellow Saints forward Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook has also received a one-match suspension, for Grade B contact with a match official.
But teammate Tommy Makinson has escaped with a caution for the same offence.
