There could have been four more charges but for unclear footage.

Four players avoided bans because of unclear footage including Huddersfield duo Seb Ikahihifo and Matty English. English was cited for dangerous contact as was Castleford’s Adam Milner who was fined anyway for a separate offence.

Mason Lino’s is most interesting with the halfback avoiding a ban for contact with the match official.

Adam Milner – Dangerous Contact – Castleford Tigers

“Player drops but does not apply pressure to the legs of the opponent. Footage unclear as to whether player has fallen or has promoted body down towards the opponent.”

Seb Ikahihifo – High Tackle – Huddersfield Giants

“Footage unclear as to the initial point of contact. Opponent is checked but can play on.”

Matty English – Dangerous Contact – Huddersfield Giants

“Footage is not clear as to the point of contact.”

Mason Lino – Contact with Match Official – Wakefield Trinity

“Footage does not definitely show contact. Any contact would be minimal as player does not present any change in how he passes behind the in goal judge and could be classed as accidental.”
