WARRINGTON Wolves will have to do without the services of Sitaleki Akauola for the foreseeable future.

The prop forward has been handed a three-match ban by the RFL's Match Review Panel for a dangerous throw during last week's 32-6 win over Leeds Rhinos.

Akauola was sin-binned by referee Chris Kendall for his tackle on Rhinos forward James Harrison before half time but upon further investigation, the panel have deemed it as warranting further sanction.

They have deemed it to be a Grade C incident and as a result of the penalty notice, Akauola will now miss The Wire's games against Catalans Dragons, Salford Red Devils and Hull Kingston Rovers.
