Disciplinary | Dan Sarginson

Salford Red Devils’ Dan Sarginson has today (Tuesday 29 September) had a two-match ban for a reckless high tackle on Hull FC’s Jamie Shaul overturned on appeal.

An independent tribunal decided that the tackle was ‘careless’ rather than ‘reckless’ and downgraded the offence from Grade B to A, which does not carry a suspension. 

A tribunal decision on Sarginson’s team mate, Luke Yates, is expected later this afternoon. The forward is appealing against the one match penalty handed out by yesterday’s Match Review Panel for a Grade B Dangerous Contact with Danny Houghton during the same game. 

Earlier today Hull FC’s Brad Fash accepted a Grade A Dangerous Contact charge which did not carry a penalty.
