Tomkins has ban extended after failed appeal

Hull Kingston Rovers captain Joel Tomkins will miss Friday’s pivotal clash with Salford after his ban was extended following a failed appeal.

Tomkins was charged for Grade A punching and given a one-match suspension following the club’s defeat to London Broncos, leaving him out of Friday’s relegation D-Day.

The Robins decided to appeal to ban, but have been unsuccessful in their attempts to get it overturned.

Instead, Tomkins has received an additional game on his ban.
