Wigan forward faces three-match ban

Wigan Warriors prop foward Taulima Tautai is set to sit out his team’s next three matches after he was issued with a Grade C charge by the Match Review Panel.

Tautai was cited for ‘Other Contrary Behaviour’ in Friday’s match against Huddersfield when he appeared to kick out in the tackle on Huddersfield’s Ukuma Ta’ai.
