The 26-year-old was sent off in the seventh minute of the Challenge Cup quarter-final tie against Warrington Wolves at the DW Stadium, after leaning his head in the direction of Stefan Ratchford.

As a result, he has now received a three-match penalty notice and a £250 fine.

The official reasoning stated: “Strikes – Head Butt – makes full contact with the head of opponent.”

Ellis will now miss Wigan’s away trips to Salford and Wakefield, which come either side of the home game against Huddersfield Giants.
