Huddersfield Giants half-back Danny Brough has been banned for one game after submitting an early guilty plea to a Grade B high tackle charge.

Brough was cited for a tackle on Wakefield utility back Reece Lyne in the 14th minute of Giants' Challenge Cup defeat by the Wildcats on 23 May.

The 33-year-old will now miss his side's Super League game against leaders Hull FC on Thursday.

Huddersfield are 11th in the table, six points outside the top eight places.
