It doesn't matter whether your team has only one or four friendlies it only knocks one match off your ban length. So the ban carries on in to the league matches.

abu, they can't play in any games if they are banned. If Town had four friendly matches they would not be able to play in them but it would only knock 1 game off their suspension total. Jamie Acton got 4 matches and 1 match will be knocked off that total in the pre-season. The other 3 will be in league matches.

That seems a very odd rule Keith

It's to stop clubs working it so that players wipe the slate clean before the league matches start. The bans are usually given for what occurred in a league or cup match and only those will count for the ban except for the one they are allowed to knock off for pre-season warm up games.

RFL Operational Rules D2.30

I think what Rockerlad is saying and forgive me if I've picked it up wrong is that for instance in Football a player may be banned domestically but can still play in Europe, so should the banned players not be allowed to play in any warm up that isn't knocking anything off their ban?

Clarification (I hope). RFL Operational Rules: The following game can count towards any suspension:

D 2.28 (d) One pre-season (warm up)) game which has been sanctioned by the RFL. Other than that: D 2.30 If a player is suspended for a stated number of matches, the suspended player shall not play in any game or enter the pitch, bench or surrounding area in any capacity until his suspension is terminated.
