CASTLEFORD Tigers have lost the services of two of their overseas stars for Sunday's Challenge Cup semi final against Widnes Vikings.

Neither powerhouse winger Justin Carney or footballing back rower Weller Hauraki will feature at Leigh Sports Village.

Carney has been suspended for two matches and fined £300 by an independent disciplinary tribunal after pleading guilty to making a Grade B dangerous throw on London Broncos player Thomas Minns in the 69th minute of a First Utility Super League Round 23 fixture.

An independent appeals tribunal has dismissed the appeal by Hauraki against the two-match suspension imposed last week for striking with his knees in a First Utility Super League Round 22 fixture against Hull FC.
