Following the latest round of Betfred Championship matches, the following charges have been issued:
Brad Gallagher – Newcastle Thunder – Grade B Dangerous Contact – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Kenny Baker – Widnes Vikings – Grade B Dangerous Contact – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Tyler Dupree – Widnes Vikings – Grade A High Tackle – 0 Match Penalty Notice
James Clare – York City Knights – Grade B High Tackle 1 Match Penalty Notice
Luke Gale will also miss Hull FC’s next five games following last night’s independent tribunal hearing.
Gale was referred to tribunal by the Match Review Panel for a Grade D ‘high studs’ offence committed during last Saturday’s Betfred Super League match against St Helens. He also contested the panel’s grading (C) of a related offence – the lifting of an injured player – and the imposition of a three-match penalty notice.
Prior to the hearing, and with Match Review Panel approval, all parties agreed that there would be a single sanction covering both charges. Following pleas of mitigation from Gale and the club, the tribunal decided to impose a five-match suspension.
