Hull FC’s Ligi Sao also learned his fate for striking at Castleford Tigers star Jake Mamo at last night’s Operational Rules Tribunal.

Sao was charged with a Grade D striking charge against Castleford man Mamo in Hull’s 46-18 defeat to the Tigers last Friday night.

And, the RFL tweeted last night: “Ligi Sao of Hull FC has been suspended for three matches, and fined £500, by the independent Operational Rules Tribunal after being found guilty of a Grade D charge of striking in last Friday’s Betfred Super League fixture against Castleford Tigers.”

It means Sao will miss FC’s next three games, including this weekend’s trip to Toulouse Olympique.

Meanwhile, Mamo successfully appealed against the one-match suspension imposed on him by the Match Review Panel for disputing a decision in the win over Hull.

Last night’s meeting of the Operational Rules Tribunal accepted Mamo’s plea that his actions were not aimed at the referee, and therefore found him not guilty.

The ORT upheld the one-match suspension imposed on Kelepi Tanginoa, who had challenged a Grade A charge of dangerous contact in Sunday’s home game against St Helens. The challenge was not found to be frivolous, but the one-match suspension and £500 fine still stood.

It means that Mamo is free to play against Wakefield this Friday night, whilst Tanginoa will sit out.

Following the latest round of Betfred Super League fixtures, the following sanctions were issued.

Ligi Sao – Hull FC – Grade D Strikes – Refer to Tribunal
Leroy Cudjoe – Huddersfield Giants – Grade B Dangerous Contact – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Jake Mamo – Castleford Tigers – Grade B Disputes Decision – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Connor Wynne – Hull FC – Grade A Disputes Decision – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Daniel Alvaro – Toulouse Olympique – Grade B Dangerous Contact – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Korbin Sims – Hull KR – Grade B Dangerous Contact – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Kelepi Tanginoa – Wakefield Trinity – Grade A Dangerous Contact – 1 Match Penalty Notice
