LEIGH Centurions will be without Ben Reynolds for Sunday's trip to Wakefield Trinity.

In a further blow to head coach John Duffy's already stretched squad, the half-back has been hit with a one-match ban by the RFL's Match Review Panel.

Reynolds was handed a Grade B tripping charge and as a result, he will miss Sunday's game at the Mobile Rocket Stadium.

Wakefield have suspension issues of their own, with second rower Matty Ashurst forced to sit the match out.

He will miss Sunday's match and the following week's trip to Warrington Wolves after picking up a two-game ban for a Grade C dangerous throw.

Elsewhere, Catalans forward Joel Tomkins will be referred to a tribunal after being charged with Grade D punching.

The charge results from a flare-up during the Dragons' 48-0 hammering of Wigan Warriors, which concluded in Zak Hardaker being sent off for a headbutt on Sam Tomkins.

Hardaker has been handed a two-match ban for the headbutt.
