Salford Red Devils’ Ryan Brierley escapes ban after successful appeal

Salford Red Devils’ Ryan Brierley has escaped a ban after taking his initial Grade B Dangerous Contact charge to an appeal.

The appeal was heard tonight and it was downgraded to a Grade A, meaning he will now not face a ban and so will be fit to face Huddersfield Giants on Sunday.

The RFL tweeted: “Ryan Brierley pleaded guilty to but challenged the grading of his Grade B Dangerous Contact charge. A 1 Match Penalty Notice was issued but he will now not serve a ban after the challenge was successful and the charge was downgraded to Grade A.”
