Leeds Rhinos, St Helens and Wakefield Trinity decide whether to appeal bans

Leeds Rhinos, St Helens and Wakefield Trinity have decided whether or not to appeal the bans dished out by the Disciplinary Match Review Panel yesterday.

The charges were as followed:

Max Jowitt (Wakefield) – Grade C Other Contrary Behaviour – 2 Match Penalty Notice
Cameron Smith (Leeds) – Grade B Dangerous Contact – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Kruise Leeming (Leeds) – Grade B High Tackle – 1 Match Penalty Notice
David Fusitu’a (Leeds) – Grade A Late Hit – 0 Match Penalty Notice
Konrad Hurrell (St Helens) – Grade A Late Hit – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Matt Davis (Warrington) – Grade B Dangerous Tackle – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Josh Charnley (Warrington) – Grade C Strikes – 2 Match Penalty Notice

With Warrington Wolves confirming last night that they wouldn’t appeal bans given to Josh Charnley or Matt Davis, Leeds, St Helens and Wakefield have responded in the same manner.

No club will appeal the charges handed out to their players following this weekend’s action in round four of Super League.

Josh Charnley, who has received a two-match ban for Grade C Kicking, took to Twitter to question the charge.

Charnley’s charge reads: “Law 15.1(a) Striking – Kicking – Trips, kicks or strikes another player – Kicking – makes light contact with opponent Grade C.”

But, the winger, who has been in excellent form for the Wolves so far this season, called into question the ban, tweeting: “Can someone from the RFL call me and explain why I’m banned for 2 games??”
