Wigan winger Shaun Ainscough has been slapped with a three-match ban for his involvement in a fight during a reserve match.
The 20-year-old prospect has spent most of the season on loan at Castleford and Widnes after an impressive season for his parent club in 2009.
But while back in the Wigan set-up, he was involved in a fracas after being sent to the sin bin during an Under-20s match with Warrington.
The contest on May 9 ended with the Wolves securing a 30-22 victory over their rivals.
Ainscough's team-mate Jack Hughes has been handed an eight-game suspension for running in and punching an opponent in the same match.
