Wigan coach Shaun Wane expects Leeds' Danny McGuire to be banned from Friday's Grand Final qualifying semi-final.

The Rhinos playmaker was charged with a Grade B high tackle during last week's win at Catalan for a challenge on Louis Anderson.

Wigan will be without hooker Michael McIlorum for the game due to suspension and Wane wants consistency from the review panel.

Both teams are 80 minutes away from the Grand Final at Old Trafford and Wane will be watching the outcome with a keen eye.

"If there's any consistency from the review panel and the disciplinary then Danny won't be playing on Friday because, if anything, what he did was worse than what Micky did," Wane told the Wigan Observer.

"I expect him to be suspended. It's straightforward to me, if Micky got three weeks for what he did... but I'm not holding my breath on that one. I'll be watching it closely."

Even though McGuire could miss out on the mouth-watering clash, Wane is fully aware Leeds have plenty of other match-winners in their squad.

"Danny McGuire is a quality player but without him, Leeds still have a lot of attacking threats. So we'll be ready, no matter whether he's playing or not," he concluded.
