Hull KR star could face mammoth ban as decision made on Sam Walters and St Helens trio

There was always a suspicion that Round Three of Super League could be the Round that yields the most bans.

This was because of the feisty affairs that were served up during the week.

The big talking points came out of the St Helens vs Leeds Rhinos clash.

The game saw three St Helens players spend time off the field with Curtis Sironen and Sione Mata’utia yellow carded.

Meanwhile, Konrad Hurrell was shown a red but that wasn’t where the controversy ended.

Sam Walters was accused by man of a shoulder charge and he been found guilty of the offence despite it being overlooked during the game.

He will receive a £250 fine and will be available to take on Wakefield Trinity.

The trio of Saints stars aren’t so lucky.

Meanwhile, Hull KR captain Shaun Kenny-Dowall could face a long stretch on the sidelines for making contact with a player who could be injured during the clash with Leigh Leopards. This is Grade E.

All in all, 11 players have been charged, four banned, one set for tribunal and five fined.

Sam Eseh was cautioned on debut for Wakefield Trinity.
