Super League Disciplinary: Four teams sweat over suspensions

Super League disciplinary

The Super League disciplinary process will once again take place today, and a number of teams may be worried ahead of the Match Review Panel’s decisions.

Round Eight brought us an exciting set of fixtures, with big results for Huddersfield Giants, and Catalans Dragons, who remain two points clear at the top of the Super League table.

The Giants battled hard to beat Leeds Rhinos 30-24 at Headingley, while St Helens comfortably defeated Hull FC in a 58-0 demolition job.

Despite a promising performance, Castleford Tigers lost to Wigan Warriors again, and other sides at the bottom, Leigh Leopards and London Broncos, both came close before eventually succumbing to Warrington Wolves and Salford Red Devils.

In Perpignan, Catalans Dragons defeated Hull KR in a surprising fashion, winning 36-6 against one of the league’s most exciting sides.

Despite their impressive victory, Huddersfield may wait with bated breath for a decision on Luke Yates, who was sin-binned in the first half of their game against Leeds Rhinos for a high tackle on Luis Roberts.

Salford were down to twelve men for a significant portion of the second half in their game against London Broncos, as a tip tackle on Marcus Stock caused King Viniyayawa to be red carded, and he is likely to face a significant ban.

However, London Broncos’ tough campaign could also be made tougher, as Will Lovell was also carded – sin-binned for a ‘dangerous tackle’ on Salford’s Tim Lafai.

Matty Storton has had an excellent campaign for Hull KR, but he was sin-binned for a high tackle on Catalans’ winger Tom Johnstone, and could face further action as a result.

As we’ve seen in recent weeks, there could also be a number of seemingly-innocuous incidents from Round Eight that result in significant disciplinary decisions also.
