Hull KR captain Shaun Kenny-Dowall given lengthy ban after being found guilty at tribunal

HULL KR captain knows his fate after appearing at the Operational Rules Tribunal.

Kenny-Dowall will miss the next four Rovers matches after admitting a Grade E charge of making unnecessary contact with an injured opponent during last Friday’s Betfred Super League game against Leigh Leopards.

The Rovers skipper pleaded guilty, but his exceptional disciplinary record meant that the sanction was set at the lower end of the 4-6 match penalty band. Kenny-Dowall is also fined £750 fine.
