BREAKING: St Helens duo given bans following Wigan Warriors defeat whilst another Super League club will appeal suspension

St Helens’ Morgan Knowles and Curtis Sironen will miss Monday’s Betfred Super League fixture against Wakefield Trinity following today’s Match Review Panel review of last night’s match against Wigan Warriors. Both players were found guilty of Grade A careless high tackle offences.

The Match Review Panel met yesterday (Friday 26 August) to review the other five Round 25 fixtures. Hull KR’s Jez Litten, who was handed a two-match penalty for a grade C dangerous throw, will challenge the grading at an appeal on Wednesday 31 August. Lambert Belmas (Toulouse Olympique), Brad Fash (Hull FC), Lee Gaskell (Wakefield Trinity), Jimmy Keinhorst (Hull KR) and Aidan Sezer (Leeds Rhinos), all accepted their penalty charges.

The Match Review Panel will consider incidents from Super League’s Round 26 fixtures on Tuesday 30 August, and from this weekend’s Betfred Championship and Betfred League One fixtures on Thursday 1 September.

Wigan ran out 30-10 winners over St Helens last night in what was an incredible victory for Matt Peet’s men.

Winning head coach Matt Peet made a scary admission on his side – they can get even better!

“We can do some things a lot better but everyone is aware what wins games this time of year and that’s the commitment to the performance,” Peet said on Sky Sports after the game.

“We can attack a lot better and even our defence wasn’t perfect but people were covering their backs for each other.

“We will have to be technically better to get what we want this year, but we looked like a great bunch of mates.”

Peet also referenced the people he thought stood out.

“Brad O’Neill was superb for a young lad through against what is basically the England pack and John Bateman did some special things. Mike Cooper stood up.

“They will take some beating in the play-offs but tonight is for us.”
