Player referred to tribunal for “homophobic abuse” as former Leeds Rhinos man also set for long ban

The RFL have announced the charges from the Women’s Super League, Reserves, Scholarship and Academy fixtures recently and they are quite damning.

Three players have been sent to tribunal with huge bans incoming. One is Castleford Tigers Scholarship man Harry Egley and the young man has been charge with a Grade E dangerous throw. For the sake of the young man’s development it’s hoped that the RFL go easy on him in terms of bans.

Meanwhile former Leeds Rhinos man Josh Jordan-Roberts will also be present at the tribunal hit with a Grade D Dangerous contact charge for Hunslet so could be hit with a three to five game ban.

The last player sent to tribunal doesn’t even have a charge having been accused of homophobic abuse. The player is London Broncos Sitiveni Moceidreke.

Four other bans have also been issued including Castleford Tigers’ youngster Cain Robb on loan at Whitehaven who has copped a one match ban for dangerous contact.

Dom Speakman will serve two games for a similar charge whilst Matthew Fozzard of Widnes is banned for one game for the same offence.

Newcastle reserves player Dan Coates faces two games also for dangerous contact.
