Three Super League players banned, one referred to tribunal

Following the recent round of pulsating Super League action, there were a total of four punishments across the six games.

Ligi Sao has been handed a one-match penalty notice, after receiving a Grade A charge for striking  in the 42th minute during their tight 26-27 victory over Wakefield. Therefore, he will miss Hull FC’s next fixture, which is against Warrington on Thursday, in a game which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Catalans’ Sam Tomkins earned himself a sin-bin for a trip on Niall Evalds in the first-half of their clash with Salford and will now face further sanctions for this action, after being charged with a two-match penalty notice

The Warriors will be without two key men for a minimum of two games after receiving two mentions in the RFL’s Match Review Minutes, released  Monday, following their victory over Hull KR on Sunday. Ben Flower will sit out two games after being dealt with a Grade C Dangerous Contact, which was on Matty Storton in the first-half.

Oliver Partington’s foul play on Robbie Mulhern in the second-half has been recognised as Grade D Dangerous Contact by the RFL and is the only charge to be referred to the tribunal.

Huddersfield’s Joe Wardle collected a warning for the usage of a knee in the tackle.
