Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Hull FC and St Helens stars landed themselves in hot water with the match review panel.
14 players were charged and six players were banned but half of these suspensions went to play off chasing Salford Red Devils.
The Red Devils have lost Oliver Partington to a ban alongside skipper Kallum Watkins and King Vuniyayawa.
The former Leeds prop was hit with two bans and fans are not impressed with the treatment of the Red Devils.
That Wigan Salford game was played thoroughly in a good nature. Possibly the high tackle on French which was a lazy arm, yellow card at the very worse. Now we have bans and fines thrown about as if they’re going out of fashion.
This panel constantly bringing the game down.

Cullen and his fellow witches need to put the spoons down. Ridiculous to spend so much time trying desperately to find things to ban people for. Six charges and four bans for Salford? Absolutely nothing in that game to warrant that. Turn it in lads, massively damaging the sport.

MRP undermining the refs. Not really giving them your help. Abuse on Twitter and you’re making it worse

Honestly anyone who watched that salford wigan game would not say there were 4 bans salford. Maybe the king one on French that's it

None of incidents committed by Salford players against Wigan anywhere near deserved additional punishment. Stop unnecessarily throwing punishments and vilifying players with careers, reputations and finances to protect. https://t.co/ZU34AkWywx

I don’t think any of the things Salford have been cited for were worthy of being punished beyond what they were during the game. Why does Rugby League go back and scrutinise every game to hand out punishments? This to me is saying the Disciplinary think Kendall got a lot wrong. https://t.co/CNQSUfuvAX
