WARRINGTON Wolves Super League squad man Jacob Gannon will miss three games through suspension.

The young prop had to answer to a grade D charge of striking in the 18th minute of the recent reserves game against Leeds Rhinos, with the incident being referred to a tribunal.

Following the outcome of an independent tribunal hearing in which he pleaded guilty to a Grade D dangerous contact charge, he collected a ban of three matches which started with the Warrington Wolves Reserves game at Wigan on Saturday.

Siddal junior Gannon featured in first-team squads last year before spending the latter part of 2021 on loan at Championship side York City Knights.

He still awaits his first-team debut with The Wire.

The 20-year-old, whose younger brother Morgan made a first-team breakthrough with Leeds Rhinos last year, plays in the back row and/or at loose forward.

They are the sons of former Halifax, Huddersfield and Widnes prop Jim Gannon.

He was one of seven Wire young guns to be included in the England Academy performance squad that would have toured Down Under had it not been for Covid-19 reasons.

In 2019 he was a member of the England Academy side that defeated Wales 62-0 in Llanelli.
