BEN Westwood will serve a four-game ban for his headbutt on Wigan's Morgan Escare.

The Wire forward pleaded guilty but unsuccessfully challenged the decision to categorise the incident at Grade D.

Westwood, who will also pay a £500 fine, will miss away games at Wakefield, Hull FC and St Helens as well as a home game against London.

He will not be available to play again until The Wire host Salford Red Devils on April 19.

In the same incident that saw Westwood sent off, Wire half-back Declan Patton and Wigan's Willie Isa will face no further action after the Match Review Panel ruled their sin-binnings were sufficient.

Warriors second rower Joe Greenwood will also face no further action after being put on report when his alleged shoulder charge forced Blake Austin off the field for a concussion assessment.

Meanwhile, Thursday's opponents Wakefield will be without Danny Kirmond after he was handed a two-match penalty notice for Grade C dangerous contact during their win at Hull FC.
