Operational Rules Tribunal | 16 April

The independent Operational Rules Tribunal upheld a Grade B Dangerous Contact charge issued to Sauaso Sue of Hull KR by the Match Review Panel following an incident in the Betfred Challenge Cup Quarter Final against Leigh Leopards. Hull KR’s challenge to the grading was rejected, so the one-match suspension stands.

Bayley Sironen of Catalans Dragons was cleared of a Grade E Head Contact charge following an incident in Saturday’s Quarter Final against Huddersfield Giants, following the submission of additional footage by the Dragons to the MRP, with the ORT then ratifying their decision to drop the charge.

Sylvester Namo of Castleford Tigers was found guilty of Grade E dangerous contact in Sunday’s quarter final against Wigan Warriors, and suspended for five matches, with a £750 fine. The ORT rejected Namo’s not guilty plea, but downgraded the offence, which had been charged at Grade F by the Match Review Panel.
