Wakefield forward Dean Hadley will serve a one-match ban when Trinity take on his parent club Hull FC on Thursday, live on Sky Sports Arena from 7.30pm.
Hadley, who is on loan from Hull, was sin-binned for a 'crusher' tackle on centre Mark Percival during Wakefield's home defeat by St Helens last Thursday and subsequently charged with a grade B offence.
He has now submitted an early-guilty plea and has been handed a one-game suspension.
Hadley would not have been able to play in the penultimate Super 8s round as part of his loan deal but a Rugby Football League spokesman confirmed that the agreement between the clubs does not fall under the league's operational rules relating to suspensions.
The back-rower will, therefore, be free to return for Trinity's final league game of the season against Wigan on Saturday week.
Catalans Dragons forward Louis Anderson is clear to play in Friday's Qualifiers clash with Hull KR, also live on Sky Sports Arena, after submitting an early-guilty to a grade A charge of punching during his side's win over Featherstone.
Featherstone forward Josh Walters has similarly been told he will face no further action after admitting a grade A offence arising from the same game.
