Acton’s case adjourned as Leigh prepare appeal

Jamie Acton will face the RFL’s disciplinary committee next week after Leigh requested the hearing was adjourned.

The Centurions forward was handed a Grade F charge after he was pictured grabbing Catalans forward Greg Bird while he was on the floor following a collision with Leigh’s Ben Reynolds.

The case will now be heard on July 11th. Acton will not be available to play before then and will therefore miss Leigh’s game against Warrington on Friday.
