Ablett, who has not missed a game since last June, will sit out Leeds' Tetley's Challenge Cup quarter-final against Leigh on Friday as well as the league game against Huddersfield on Thursday week.

Wakefield prop Richard Moore will miss his club's home game against London Broncos on Friday week after admitting a Grade B striking offence during his side's 20-12 defeat at Bradford last Sunday. He was given a one-match ban.
