Super League side no longer appealing star player’s charge but he will still be available for huge game

After Round 1o of the Betfred Super League, 11 different players were charged by the Match Review Panel and seven bans have also been handed out.

James Batchelor, Tom Holroyd, Nathan Peats and Jorge Taufua were the four players who haven’t been hit with a ban but Holroyd has been fined £250.

Bureta Faraimo was charged twice. For one incident he avoided any punishment but his second, for a strikes, he has been given a one match ban.

Alongside the Castleford Tigers star, Willie Isa of Wigan Warriors, Michael McIlorum and Siosiua Taukeiaho of Catalans Dragons, Liam Watts and Kenny Edwards of Cas and Nathan Wildie of Leigh Leopards are the other players banned.

Isa was the only player hit with a two match ban.

After these bans were handed out there were two appeals.

The first was that of Leigh Leopards star Nathan Wilde whose appeal was heard last week as his ban was overturned and he was given a fine instead as the club successfully appealed the grading of his offence with it being reduced to a Grade A. He can now featured against Castleford Tigers.

Meanwhile, Catalans Dragons appealed Taukeiaho’s ban in the hope he could feature against Champions St Helens.

This appeal was scheduled for a tribunal tonight but it was already established he would avoid a ban after further investigation into his prior record.

Having decided that a ban would not be forthcoming, the tribunal has not taken place showing great common sense from all involved.

Thus, the prop will feature on Friday against the Saints.
