Luke Gale’s two-match ban was downgraded to one, but the controversy surrounding the ban has still not gone away.
The English halfback was charged with a Grade B contact with the referee, but it was a charge that Leeds boss Richard Agar fought all the way.
“We’re disappointed, he had a fair trial and the rules are the rules,” Agar said.
“People have seen the video and it’s a hard one to call – the bloke on the match review is putting him in the basket that he’s told to do.
“If we don’t like the rules maybe we should change the rules.
Agar believed that Gale showed no malice whatsoever in the incident, which is the issue which Agar challenged.
“Grade B is a potential to cause injury and they are the bits we challenged – we wholly rejected that there was an intention to cause injury.
“We understand that it’s the law, and the fact that he’s got previous didn’t help.”
