After their defeat to Wigan Warriors, Leigh Leopards now face the difficult task of going to Hull KR’s Craven Park this Friday.
For so long it seemed Leigh were guaranteed a home play off game but that is no longer the case.
That is a blow in itself but is exacerbated by recent news. For started, Zak Hardaker is set to miss the game and is set for an operation on his thumb.
Making matters even worse, the Leopards have been one of the sides hit the hardest by disciplinary with Tom Amone banned for the crusher tackle that saw him placed on report.
This comes after the Match Review Panel met on Monday.
Wigan will have been nervous over a number of their stars after potential high tackles from a number of their star men.
The same could be said of Warrington Wolves whilst Max Jowitt could have faced a similar offence.
Leigh may have had a few worries with Edwin Ipape after a tackle similar to the infamous John Asiata tackles whilst Tom Amone was placed on report for a crusher tackle.
There could have been bans for yellow card offences from Sam Tomkins, Amir Bourouh, Sam Lisone and Liam Watts.
Now the disciplinary verdicts have been confirmed.
