Huddersfield captain Michael Lawrence will miss his club’s Challenge Cup sixth-round tie against St Helens after being given a one-match ban.

The back-row forward accepted a penalty notice handed down by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel for a grade B offence of dangerous contact during the Giants’ 26-25 Betfred Super League defeat by Wakefield on Friday.

It is a blow for the Giants, who will have their work cut out for them on Sunday as they face a Saints side that has only lost one game this season.

The only other players charged from the round 14 matches were Warrington forwards Matt Davis and Mike Cooper, who were both given grade A penalty notices for dangerous play and avoided any suspension.
