John White, the London Leopards' leading scorer, misses Friday's visit to Newcastle, with a one-game ban after being expelled against Chester Jets two weeks ago.

The English Association has launched an inquiry into an incident in the National League match between Rhondda Rebels and Crystal Palace that left the south Wales hosts' Missy Lender with eye and facial injuries. Lender needed several stitches and is likely to be out of action for a month after the match nine days ago. Crystal Palace strongly criticised the referee after their 79-57 defeat, while Rebels are waiting to obtain a video of the match which they hope will shed some light on how Lender's injuries came about.
