The following player was handed a caution:

Elijah Taylor (Salford) – Other Contrary Behaviour

It will strike you that Leeds have three men banned, one of whom is Aidan Sezer as Leeds eventually ran out 34-14 winners at Headingley against Salford Red Devils, but Salford boss Paul Rowley was unhappy with a decision that he felt never came after Croft lost the ball in the middle of the pitch.

Croft stepped Leeds’ Aidan Sezer with the Rhinos halfback appearing to trip the former Brisbane Broncos halfback.

“I think we got some real tough calls. The trip – Leeds should be down to 12 men and they’re not and I don’t get how cannot see that,” Rowley said after the game.

“The first two six agains against on the second half were back to six, back to six, sin bin. I think that was a bit the occasion getting the better of everybody and it became a Leeds party at the end of it but the best team won in my opinion.”

Sezer was charged with a Grade C Intentional Trip from that game, meaning he will be banned for two matches.

However, Serious About Rugby League understands that Sezer and Leeds will be appealing the ban handed out to the Australian.

Meanwhile, St Helens, Huddersfield Giants, Hull KR, Catalans Dragons and Castleford Tigers have decided not to appeal the charges handed out above.
