Wigan half-back Sam Powell will miss Saturday’s World Club Series clash with Brisbane Broncos after accepting a one-match ban.

Warriors coach Shaun Wane had stated his intention to fight a charge brought by the Rugby Football League’s match-review panel for Powell’s “chicken-wing” tackle on Huddersfield prop Eorl Crabtree during last Friday’s 24-14 Super League win over the Giants.

Wane was preparing to accompany his player to a disciplinary hearing in Leeds on Tuesday evening but the club have announced instead that Powell has submitted an early-guilty plea to the Grade B offence.

Powell, who was sent to the sin bin for the dangerous tackle, also missed Wigan’s World Club Challenge clash with Sydney Roosters 12 months ago after turning an ankle in training.
