Following tonight’s tribunal, we can confirm King Vuniyayawa has had both Grade B sanctions dropped.
He was initially charged with two one-game suspensions; one for a ‘High Tackle’ and the other for ‘Dangerous Contact’.
In each case, the charge was downgraded to Grade A, meaning a £250 fine, but no suspension – so he will be available for Sunday’s fixture at home to Warrington Wolves.
Prop, Oliver Partington has also been found not guilty of his Grade A ‘Dangerous Throw’.
In this case, Partington challenged the guilty charge, which carried a £250 fine – and was found not guilty, meaning the fine is removed and no addition to his record.
Despite our successful appeal on that particular charge, he will still be serving his one-match suspension for a Grade B ‘High Tackle’ this weekend.
In addition, our appeal against Kallum Watkins’ one-game ban for Grade B ‘High Tackle’ has been upheld, meaning the skipper will also be unavailable for selection.
Watkins’ challenge to the grading was rejected, although it was not found to be frivolous – meaning the one-match suspension and £500 fine imposed by the Match Review Panel both stand.
