Both Sam and brother Joel Tomkins will miss Wigan's game against leaders Huddersfield on Friday after being suspended by the Rugby Football League.
Reigning champions Wigan travel to face current Super League leaders Huddersfield on Friday night but they will be without both Tomkins brothers for the clash.
The RFL disciplinary committee have banned both men as a result of their actions during a stormy 14-12 victory over Hull last weekend.
Second-rower Joel was sent off against Hull, and he has now been banned for two games and fined £300 for striking Hull centre Kirk Yeaman.
His brother Sam, Wigan's full-back, was banned for just the one game and also fined £300 as he came into a brawl and was found guilty of punching in an incident that came before Joel's red card.
The pair both played in every game last season as Wigan claimed the title, while Joel has not missed a game since April 2009 but misses the trip to Huddersfield and also the visit of Warrington to the DW Stadium a week on Friday.
Yeaman has not escaped punishment for his part in the brawl though, with the RFL handing him a one-game ban which rules him out of Hull's game against Wakefield.
Also emerging from the game, Hull prop Lee Radford was found guilty of making dangerous contact with Wigan scrum-half Thomas Leuluai, but he was just fined £300 and not suspended because of his fine disciplinary record.
Crusaders man Peter Lupton was also found guilty, of a high tackle on Hull KR centre Jake Webster, but his previous good conduct also saw him escape with just a fine.
I totally agree with Jim Smith, I think there is a new rule in Rugby League that states Sam Tomkins can not be tackled, him and his brother need to sort their conduct out before they make a mockery of the sport. What J.Tomkins did was criminal and a disgrace. He clearly showed intent to harm a fellow pro and he should have to face Radders in the ring for charity and watch him squeal.

You guys are only happy with the ban or want more, because these two brothers are the best english players and cause massive threat to any team wigan go against. jealous in my eyes

That's great news about the tomkins bros! If either of them appeal, double it.

I find it disgraceful how J.Tomkins is only banned for 2 games after showing complete disrespect for his fellow professionals. I understand that in the world of professional sport emotions can run high, but he could have done serious harm to Yeaman by leading with his elbow. Does the RFL want him to break someone's jaw before taking more action???

Only to be expected that one or both would get banned for violent conduct. And no complaints from a Wigan supporter about the ban. However, what about the double standards adopted by the rfl's disciplinary. Lee Radford Mr squeeky clean don't make me laugh! And what about the man handling by Willy Manu on Sam Tomkins. And lest we forget the truly awful standard of reffing by Mr Ganson. The worst I have seen for a many long yea!. Fat and behind the play for most of the game. This brawl could have been avoided if Ganson had kept control of the game and sin binned when appropriate. He deserves to be excluded from the game until he either, or both gets fit and raises his standard of officiating. Because if that is the standard of officiating then god help Rugby League.

There are few players who front up more for their team's cause than Eorl Crabtree, so the Huddersfield forward seemed the ideal candidate for our new 'Six Tackles' series.
