Swinton Lions halfback receives lengthy ban for punching

The Operational Rules Tribunal has handed down a three-match ban to Swinton Lions’ Lewis Charnock.

Charnock was also given a £75 fine after pleading guilty to a Grade D charge of punching in Swinton’s recent pre-season friendly with Whitehaven. The grading was found to be correct by the Operational Rules Tribunal.

If Swinton are able to overcome their Welsh opponents then they will face League 1 rivals Hunslet or amateurs Siddal at home.
