Match Review Panel Minutes Monday 21 March

Warrington, Castleford, Leeds and Catalans will not be appealing their respective bans, but Will Pryce’s tribunal hearing will be held tonight.

Pryce’s victim was Hull FC’s Connor Wynne who was thrown around and then dumped on his neck in a tackle that unsurprisingly sparked the ire of Wynne’s teammates.

Huddersfield head coach Ian Watson had his own say on the incident, stating that he could have no complaints about the decision.

“It’s a big learning lesson for him,” Watson said.

“He’s devastated in the changing room. Will knows he’s messed up.

“Now he has to lick his wounds and see what the consequences are.”
