Three Catalans Dragons players have received suspensions following their ill-disciplined 20-10 defeat to Leeds in Perpignan on Friday night.

Following his red card for a head butt, prop forward Gil Dudson has received a three-match ban. The suspension will impact his World Cup hopes with Wales, with domestic bans continuing into the tournament.

John Kear’s side are set to face Lebanon in a warm-up match before featuring in in Group D of the Men’s tournament.

It means if selected, Dudson will only be available for their last group game against Papua New Guinea.

Meanwhile, fellow forward Dylan Napa has received a two-match ban for a Grade B high tackle.

Mitchell Pearce, who was sent to the sin-bin twice in the fiery clash against the Rhinos, has received a one-match suspension.

Meanwhile, Rochdale veteran forward Fuifui Moimoi could have his season cut short following a two-match ban. The 41-year-old has been charged with Grade C punching during their play-off win over rivals Oldham on Sunday. Gary Thornton’s side face North Wales Crusaders next weekend.
