It hasn’t taken former Parramatta Eels enforcer Fuifui Moimoi long to make an impact for the world’s first trans-Atlantic sporting team.

The former New Zealand international has been given a three-match ban following his dismissal in Toronto Wolfpack’s first competitive match.

 

The 37-year-old, who also won eight caps for Tonga, was sent off five minutes from the end of the Wolfpack’s 14-6 win over Siddal in the third round of the Challenge Cup for a high tackle.

He was found guilty of the offence when he appeared in front of a Rugby Football League independent disciplinary tribunal, which downgraded the charge from grade E, which could have meant a ban of up to eight matches, to grade D, which carries a tariff of between three and five games.

Moimoi, who was also fined £75 ($120), will start his suspension when Toronto visit Whitehaven League 1 at the weekend and also miss their fourth round cup tie against London Broncos plus a league game.

The former Eels forward, who scored the first hat-trick of his career in the Wolfpack’s 76-0 win over London Skolars in their opening league game last weekend, will be able to return for their game at Doncaster on April 9 and will be free to play in the club’s historic first home game against Oxford on May 6.
