Centre or second rower Isa, who was sin-binned for the challenge on Saints centre Mark Percival, was charged by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel with a Grade C offence.

Isa was also placed on report for bundling over Percival off the ball but the panel decided the incident merited no further action.

Wigan second rower Kai Pearce-Paul was also sin-binned in the match for a late tackle on full-back Lachlan Coote for which the panel issued him with a caution.

Scrum-half Harry Smith was also given a caution for a late tackle in the same game.

Warrington full-back or half-back Stefan Ratchford was charged with a Grade A late tackle during his side’s 24-16 defeat by Leeds on Monday but avoided a ban.
