Featherstone Rovers star Dane Chisholm’s appeal against eight-match ban successful

Featherstone Rovers have confirmed that Dane Chisholm’s eight-match ban has been rescinded following a successful appeal.

Dane Chisholm was previously found guilty of allegedly calling a physio a “f***ing spastic” and is alleged to have made the slur after the medic walked backwards into Chisholm and collided with him during a game at Oldham during the 2021 Championship season.

Featherstone Rovers CEO Martin Vickers commented: “We are pleased that the panel have reversed their decision.  This is a clear vindication of both the club and of Dane as an individual, we’re grateful for the help of our legal team in this matter.  This has been a difficult period for Dane and his family, the club will continue to provide it’s full support.”

That means that Chisholm is free to play as Rovers look to gather the momentum needed for Super League promotion at the end of the year.
