St Helens forward Curtis Sironen reacts to third ban of the Super League season

Curtis Sironen will be forced to sit out the next two games after picking up another ban in St Helens’ win over Huddersfield Giants on Easter Monday.

Sironen, who joined Saints in the off-season from NRL side Manly Sea Eagles, has already been banned twice this year with the season not even halfway through.

The two-game ban for a late hit on the passer means that the powerful second-rower will miss Saints away trip with Castleford Tigers on Friday followed by the home clash with Salford Red Devils the week after.

And, Sironen took to Twitter to express his disappointment with the latest suspension, tweeting: “Disappointed to be missing the next two games. Will be working hard to clean up my game and not let my team mates or fans down again by missing any more footy.”

Saints have already been rocked by injuries to young halfback Lewis Dodd as well as Regan Grace and Morgan Knowles, whilst Konrad Hurrell will also be banned for Friday’s visit to Castleford.
