Three Super League stars BANNED – here’s why

As ever, the match review panel have met and Wigan Warriors, Leeds Rhinos, Hull FC, Warrington Wolves and St Helens stars have landed themselves in hot water.

In fact there were a total of 11 charges this week but only three players received bans.

There was a huge eight fines handed out however from the latest round of Super League fixtures.

After being yellow carded for tripping Sam Lisone has been fined for the action and the same fate has befallen Daryl Clark for the same offence.

Interestingly, from the Warrington game Ben Garcia was fined for a dangerous throw but there was no charge for Matt Davis for a similar tackle against Leeds but he is fined for a high tackle.

He will be glad to avoid a ban allowing him the chance to take on Hull KR in the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley.

However, some players weren’t so lucky with three bans handed out and here’s why.

Brad Fash was banned for other contrary behaviour for a late contact on the kicker.

Meanwhile, James Bell and Kaide Ellis were both banned due to dangerous contact.

All three received only one match bans which is good for all three teams as they chase a spot in the play-offs.

Wigan and Saints are gunning for the top two whilst Hull FC are chasing down rivals Hull KR and Salford Red Devils in the fifth and sixth spots.
