Middlehurst ban reduced to four games
Rochdale Hornets player Gary Middlehurst has had his initial six game ban reduced to four after he appeared before an RFL Disciplinary Committee Appeal hearing last night.
Middlehurst had been handed a six match ban for committing a Grade E intentional kick to the head offence during Rochdale’s Co-operative Championship One fixture against North Wales Crusaders on April 1, however this was reduced to four matches by the panel following an appeal against the severity of the sentence.
Working Town player Brett Carter was suspended for one match after he appeared before the Disciplinary Panel charged with committing a Grade B, reckless strike offence, during Workington’s derby fixture against Whitehaven on April 6.
Whitehaven player Brad Crellin was also suspended for one match after he submitted an Early Guilty Plea in relation to a Grade B dangerous contact offence committed during Whitehaven’s Carnegie Challenge Cup fourth round tie against Salford City Reds.
