Hull KR confirm appeal decision on Jesse Sue ban

Hull KR Jesse Sue is tackled. He faces Super League disciplinary action.

Hull KR have confirmed that they are set to appeal the ban that has been handed to forward Jesse Sue following the club’s Challenge Cup quarter-final win on Saturday over Leigh Leopards.

The prop forward was hit with a Grade B charge of dangerous contact and that saw him hit with a one-game ban, the higher end of the punishment scale with fines also applicable at Grade B.

Instead, though the club have confirmed their intent to appeal the decision which means they will attend tomorrow night’s Operational Rules Tribunal to challenge the grading and potentially reverse the ban.

The Robins confirmed their intention to challenge the grading with an announcement made via social media.

Posting on X, it read: “Hull KR can confirm the club will challenge Sauaso Sue’s one-match penalty notice for ‘Dangerous Contact’ at an appeal tomorrow.”

It means that there will be three cases heard by the Operational Rules Tribunal tomorrow night with both Bayley Sironen and Sylvester Namo set to have their cases heard too.

Sironen was handed a Grade E charge for head contact in Catalans Dragons’ defeat against Huddersfield Giants, a charge that can carry a three to five-game ban.

As for Namo, he was hit with a Grade F charge for dangerous contact for his role in the tackle that lew to Wigan Warriors forward Willie Isa dislocating and fracturing his ankle.

Namo could be set for a six game ban or potentially more if found guilty at tribunal.

Footage of the tackle emerged on social media which has triggered a split reaction between fans regarding if the tackle was of such nature that warrants such a heavy ban.
