Matautia pleaded guilty to both his Grade B offences but challenged the gradings, which followed separate incidents in last Friday’s Betfred Super League game at Wakefield Trinity.

For the first, a charge of Grade B dangerous contact, the Operational Rules Tribunal downgraded the offence to Grade A, meaning the one-match suspension was removed, with the £500 fine remaining.

For the second, a charge of Grade B high tackle, the grading was found to be correct and deemed “reckless” so the one-match ban and the £500 fine stands.
