    Australian prop Justin Poore has been sent off on his Wakefield debut after provoking a Boxing Day brawl with Super League champions Leeds in their challenge match at Headingley.

    Poore, a former Parramatta forward, was dismissed by referee Jamie Leahy after fighting with Leeds prop Ryan Bailey just 20 minutes into his first appearance on English soil in the festive friendly.

    It was a nightmare debut for the 27-year-old, who had already conceded three penalties before being sent off, and he could miss the start of the Super League campaign in February if he is banned by the disciplinary committee.

    There wasn't much Christmas spirit in evidence at Headingley as Bailey was sin-binned for his part in the fracas, along with teammate Mitch Achurch and Wakefield winger Ben Cockayne.

    Leeds hooker Paul McShane, making his return from a loan spell with Widnes, became the fourth player to be shown a yellow card when he was sin-binned on 57 minutes for a high tackle.

    Once the teams finally concentrated on their rugby rather than trading blows, the star of the show was acting Leeds captain Danny McGuire, one of three members of the Rhinos' grand final-winning team.

    Joe Vickery, a 23-year-old Australian on trial with Leeds, boosted his chances of securing a contract by scoring two well-taken tries in the first 22 minutes.

    Ha, classic. I was playing street cricket with his brother on Xmas day. Apparently was very close to joining the Knights, but the UK cash was too hard to pass up, $300K
