Further charges avoided by Super League stars due to unclear footage

A huge 12 charges have been handed out after Round 10 of the Bretfred Super League.

11 different players have been charged and one has been cautioned.

A huge seven bans have also been handed out.

James Batchelor, Tom Holroyd, Nathan Peats and Jorge Taufua are the four players who haven’t been hit with a ban but Holroyd has been fined £250.

Meanwhile, Huddersfield Giants star Luke Yates has been handed a caution.

Bureta Faraimo is the player charged twice. For one incident he avoided any punishment but his second, for a strikes, he has been given a one match ban.

Alongside the Castleford Tigers star, Willie Isa of Wigan Warriors, Michael McIlorum and Siosiua Taukeiaho of Catalans Dragons, Liam Watts of Cas and Nathan Wildie of Leigh Leopards are the other players banned.

Isa is the only player hit with a two match ban.

Following the latest round of Betfred Super League fixtures, the Match Review Panel have issued the following sanctions:


Joe Batchelor – St Helens – Other Contrary Behaviour – A – No further action
Kenny Edwards – Castleford Tigers – Other Contrary Behaviour – C – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Bureta Faraimo – Castleford Tigers – Dangerous Contact – A – No further action
Bureta Faraimo – Castleford Tigers – Strikes – B – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Tom Holroyd – Leeds Rhinos – Dangerous Contact – B – £250 Fine
Willie Isa – Wigan Warriors – Dangerous Throw – C – 2 Match Penalty Notice
Michael McIlorum – Catalans Dragons – Trips – B – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Nathan Peats – Huddersfield Giants – Dangerous Contact – A – No further action
Jorge Taufua – Wakefield Trinity – Dangerous Contact – A – No further action
Siosiua Taukeiaho – Catalans Dragons – High Tackle – B – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Liam Watts – Castleford Tigers – Dangerous Contact – B – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Nathan Wildie – Leigh Leopards – Dangerous Contact – B – 1 Match Penalty Notice

It could have been a lot worse for Michael McIlorum. His ban could have been added to as he was cited for two things but evidence couldn’t be found for this with footage unclear.

The first was for dangerous contact:

“Player drops body but footage inconclusive as to the point of contact. Player gets up uninjured.”

Meanwhile, the other was for a late hit on a kicker:

“Player is late but footage does not show the nature of the contact.”

Danny Walker was also perhaps lucky as he was also cited for dangerous contact but the footage was again unclear:

“Player regrips leg of opponent in making a tackle but footage inconclusive as to whether player applies a technique which applies pressure to the leg of the opponent.”
