Leeds Rhinos prop Brad Singleton hit with six-match ban for elbow on Catalans' Greg Bird

Leeds will be without prop Brad Singleton until late April after he pleaded guilty to elbowing Catalans’ Greg Bird.

Singleton admitted the grade E offence, which happened after the ball had been passed, at last night’s disciplinary hearing in Leeds.

The forward was banned for six matches and fined £300 after being placed on report in the early stages of the 46-10 win over the French club.

The incident left Bird needing seven stitches in the back of his head, with Dragons coach Laurent Frayssinous saying he should have been dismissed.
