Wakefield's survival hopes at the foot of Super League have taken another knock after Monty Betham and Ned Catic were both handed suspensions.
Catic will miss three of Wakefield's most vital matches
The Rugby Football League fined each player £300 and banned Betham for two games and Catic for three after they were sent off against Castleford.
Betham was found guilty of repeated punching and Catic was found guilty of butting and punching.
Wakefield are joint bottom of Super League with Wigan and Catalans Dragons.
The judiciary process was swift and fair, the club can't condone the players' actions
The French newcomers, who are Wakefield's next opponents, are exempt from relegation to give them a chance to get established in Super League.
Wigan have enjoyed a change in fortune since Brian Noble took over, but were pushed back into the relegation dogfight on Monday when they had two points deducted for breaking the salary cap.
"The judiciary process was a swift and fair one. The club can't condone the two players' actions during the fixture against Castleford," said coach John Kear.
"We fully accept the punishment received as a consequence of those actions."
The duo will both miss the games against the Dragons this weekend and the trip to Leeds the following week.
Catic also misses the clash with St Helens on 1 September.
