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.
