St Helens player suspended for four games

 

St Helens winger Francis Meli has been suspended for four games after he appeared before the RFL Disciplinary Panel earlier this evening in relation to an offence committed during the Tetley’s Challenge Cup tie against Hull KR on Saturday April 20.

 

Meli was found guilty of committing a Grade E intentional high tackle offence on Craig Hall in the 33rd  minute of the game and was also fined £300 by the panel.

Catalan Dragons hooker Ian Henderson has avoided suspension after he appeared before the panel in relation to a Grade B reckless strike charge from the Tetley’s Challenge Cup tie against Hunslet Hawks on Sunday April 21.

 

The following players were also suspended after they submitted Early Guilty Pleas in relation to offences:

-       Jon Wilkin (St Helens) – two-match ban imposed for Grade C dangerous shoulder charge on Michael Dobson on Hull KR.

-       Ade Gardner (St Helens) – one-match ban imposed for Grade B dangerous shoulder charge on Kris Welham of Hull KR

Should have been more. Sandercock should have been fined for having a whinging voice as well.
