Salford Red Devils forward Sam Luckley escapes ‘frivolous challenge’ charge after St Helens and Castleford Tigers chose not to appeal

Following the latest round of Betfred Super League fixtures, the Match Review Panel have issued the following sanctions:

Jack Welsby (St Helens) – Grade A Late Hit on Passer – 0 Match Penalty Notice
Sione Mata’utia (St Helens) – Grade C Other Contrary Behaviour – Lifting injured player – 3 Match Penalty Notice
Morgan Knowles (St Helens) – Grade A Late Hit on Passer – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Sam Luckley (Salford) – Grade B Intentional Trip – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Sam Walters (Leeds) – Grade A High Tackle – Careless – ball carrier dips – 0 Match Penalty Notice
Cheyse Blair (Castleford) – Grade C Strikes with hand, arm or shoulder – reckless – 2 Match Penalty Notice

The following player was handed a caution:

Thomas Mikaele (Warrington) – Dangerous Contact – Drop Tackle

Now, though, after being contacted by Serious About Rugby League, the RFL has revealed that St Helens, Castleford Tigers and Salford Red Devils have decided whether or not to appeal the bans given above.

Whilst Saints and Castleford haven’t, Salford’s Sam Luckley headed for an appeal tonight the RFL confirmed.

However, Luckly still remains suspended for one game after unsuccessfully challenging a Match Review Panel verdict of a Grade B intentional trip during his side’s Super League match against Catalans Dragons.
