This innocent looking tackle by Eloi Pelissier could end in the Catalans star getting a TWO-MATCH BAN.
Pelissier has been charged with Grade B dangerous contact for this tackle on Adam Walker during the Dragons’ victory over Hull KR on Thursday.

Catalans are thought to be extremely frustrated by the decision, and on this evidence, it is easy to see why, with Pelissier appearing to tackle Walker around the waist rather than the legs.
The RFL disciplinary has caused plenty of debate this season. John Boudebza was banned for four matches following a tackle that ended Michael Shenton’s season. The tackle was also charged at Grade B, but the disciplinary board took action and lifted the ban to four matches, above the recommended 1-2 game suspension, which caused outrage among fans and Boudebza’s club, Hull KR.
