Huddersfield's battle to stay in Super League has been dealt a blow after captain Danny Brough was handed a two-match ban by the Rugby Football League.

The 33-year-old, also fined £300, was found guilty of elbowing Logan Tomkins during the Giants' Qualifiers Super 8s defeat to Salford at the AJ Bell Stadium on Sunday.

Brough will now miss Huddersfield's games against Kingstone Press Championship sides Featherstone and Batley as a result.

Leigh centre Greg Worthington has also received a two-match suspension for fighting with London half-back Jamie Soward, who avoided a ban, during the Super 8s match at the Leigh Sports Village on Saturday.
