Joe Martin (Halifax Panthers) – Other Contrary Behaviour
It means former Cas man Tyla Hepi could cop a lengthy ban for punching and will be joined at tribunal by Nene MacDonald after their bust up at the Summer Bask. Rochdale’s Zac Baker and former Warrington man Dec Patton have also been sent to tribunal.
Baker’s is due to a dangerous throw whilst Patton could receive up to eight games suspended for gouging.
In total 11 players have been charged with Tyla Hepi receiving two charges alongside George Hough of the Bulls academy.
Patton’s behaviour was shown live on Premier Sports with commentators at the time questioning the move by the former Warrington Wolves man to put his fingers near a Halifax man’s eyes.
