Kingstone Press Championship players Paul March and Jamie Thackray were both suspended after appearing before the RFL Disciplinary Committee last night (Tuesday March 19).

Keighley Cougars player-coach Paul March was suspended for two games after he was found guilty of committing the Grade B offence of using foul and abusive language towards a match official during a Championship fixture against Featherstone Rovers on Thursday March 7.

Workington Town prop Jamie Thackray was also suspended for two games after he was found guilty of the Grade C offence of using foul and abusive language and aggressive body language towards a match official during a fixture against York City Knight on Sunday March 10.

Both players were also fined £50 by the Disciplinary Committee.

Hull KR Academy player Ryan Devaney was suspended for four games after he was found guilty of the Grade D offence of using foul and abusive language and questioning the integrity of a match official in an Academy fixture against Warrington Wolves on Saturday March 2.

You'd think both Marchy and Thackery had been around long enough to know better. Clearly not. :rolleyes:

You would also think that the RFL have been around long enough to inform the guilty players before anyone else wouldn't you? Jamie Thackray has just thanked a reporter for tweeting his suspension as he hadn't been informed. :o

March gets a 2 match ban for effing at a ref. Chase gets a 3 match ban for putting a player out of the game for 4 months with a broken jaw. Hmm.

Errrrrrr, No. Would you expect an employer to have to inform an employee of the result of a court case? The RFL have contact details for all players how hard is it to make a telephone call to tell them. They seemed to be very quick informing the press and other media sources.

Sorry either the player should have made the effort to attend or find out or Town should have been proactive in either representing the player or finding out

It's not the RFL's job or fault in this case

3 players charged with the same offense.

Yet the SL player only gets one game and he must have the worse record.

Do you know what was said in each case?

Or perhaps they noted everyone complain that Hock should have gotten a longer ban so they increased the punishment

The players and clubs know when the hearing is - if they want to know the outcome then they can find out. They are well aware that they work in a very public environment where press releases will be sent out, it is their fault if they don't know.

What if the RFL can't get hold of somebody (battery died, no signal etc) - are they not allowed to release the results?

Surely the players had some sort of representative at the hearing anyway? If not, tough.

There you go then. Its his own fault he didn't find out from the RFL direct, whatever difference that makes anyway.
