Super League Disciplinary: Two players set for tribunal facing long bans

The quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup always give the competing teams and players contrasting highs and lows, but alongside this, they brought moments that have had Super League disciplinary consequences.

With all eight sides being Super League sides, the decisions will impact Round Eight and beyond, as the Match Review Panel have made their decisions.

Catalans Dragons suffered a surprise defeat to Huddersfield Giants on Saturday in Perpignan, losing 34-6 to a side that have shown they can put points on the board in recent weeks.

Arthur Mourgue was the only man to be sent to the sin bin across the weekend.

Hull KR defeated Leigh Leopards in an intense affair at Craven Park, while St Helens were shocked by Warrington Wolves, losing 31-8 at home.

Castleford Tigers were on the end of a drubbing, as they lost 60-6 to Wheldon Road.

However, there were few incidents in these games, meaning we’ve seen a quieter week than what we’re used to in the Super League disciplinary process.

Super League Disciplinary: Two players set for large bans

It has now been revealed which players have been charged for their misdemeanours and in total there are just three charges, however, two could lead to very large bans.

Hull KR’s Jesse Sue has been hit with a one-game ban for Grade B Dangerous Contact meaning that he will miss the club’s trip to face Catalans in Round Eight.

Another man likely to miss that game is Catalans’ Bayley Sironen who has been charged with a Grade E offence of Head Contact, something that he will head to tribunal for tomorrow evening.

He will be joined there by Castleford Tigers man Sylvester Namo who has been with a Grade F charge of Dangerous Contact with problems worsening for the Tigers and Craig Lingard.
