SAINTS' Challenge Cup opponents Warrington Wolves will be without Tom Lineham for Saturday's tie - and for a good chunk of the remainder of the 2020 season.

Lineham has been banned for eight matches and fined £500 after being found guilty of 'Other Contrary Behaviour' during his side's Betfred Super League fixture against Castleford Tigers last Thursday.

It stems from an incident in which the wingman grabbed the testicles of Castleford's Alex Foster in Thursday's game.

The RFL's Match Review Panel determined that the Warrington Wolves winger had committed a Grade F offence and referred the incident to an independent tribunal. Lineham contested the decision, but the tribunal found it to be correct.

Jordan Abdull of Hull KR has been suspended for two matches after pleading guilty to a charge of Other Contrary Behaviour, in which he put his arm between the legs of Saints' second row James Bentley in last Friday's game.

Abdull successfully challenged the grading of the offence as D, downgrading it to Grade C. He has also been fined £500.
