Rugby league's Wigan Warriors have started some pre-season training with a difference.

Last night they were combining conventional training with doing odd jobs in the community - from sweeping up leaves to painting church roofs.

It kept them up half the night.

Salford's Lama Tasi facing two-match ban for shoulder charge

Salford forward Lama Tasi faces a two-match ban after he was charged with striking with the shoulder in his side's Challenge Cup semi-final defeat by Wigan.

The Rugby Football League's match review panel viewed the tackle on Wigan prop Taulima Tautai as a grade B offence and Tasi must face a disciplinary hearing in Leeds on Tuesday.

The recommended maximum punishment is a two-game suspension, which would rule Tasi out of Friday's trip to Hull and the home game against Castleford seven days later.

Wigan's 27-14 victory which booked a Wembley date with Hull could come at a cost after hooker Sam Powell was charged with grade B dangerous contact on Tasi in a separate incident.

Powell has the option of submitting an early guilty plea and accepting a one-match ban that would see him miss Friday's Super 8s meeting with Leeds at Headingley.

Warriors team-mate Frank-Paul Nuuausala received a caution for raising a knee in the tackle.

There were no charges from Hull's 43-24 win over Leeds on Saturday.
