CASTLEFORD’S Justin Carney has been given a second two-match ban of the season for a dangerous throw on Saints skipper Paul Wellens.

The former Sydney Roosters winger, who has scored four tries this campaign, was found guilty on Monday.

Carney, who was given a two-match ban for fighting at Hull last month, will miss home games against Huddersfield and Widnes.

Hull KR stand-off Travis Burns will also sit out two matches - his first suspension in the English game - after being found guilty of a late hit in his side’s Good Friday win over Hull FC.

Burns, who missed the first four games of the season owing to a 12-game ban carried over from his time in Australia, will miss meetings with St Helens and Huddersfield.
