Leeds forward Thompson suspended for first two Qualifiers games

Leeds Rhinos forward Jordan Thompson will miss his side’s first two Qualifiers games due to a suspension for dangerous contact.

Thompson, who signed for Leeds last week from Leigh, was handed a Grade C charge on his debut against Salford Red Devils and given a two-match penalty notice.

Leeds lost 38-22 against the Red Devils, who had 12 men for an hour following Lee Mossop’s red card.

The Rhinos will play host to Hull KR, Salford, Toronto and Toulouse at Emerald Headingley, leaving Widnes, London and Halifax to visit on their travels.

Fixture dates will be released later this week.
