Wakefield Trinity's Danny Kirmond.

The Rugby Football League’s match review panel issued a two-match penalty notice, which means Kirmond is set to miss Thursday’s visit of Warrington Wolves and the following week’s home game against Salford Red Devils.

Kirmond could appeal, but would risk the ban being increased if the RFL’s disciplinary committee found him guilty.
