Jake Connor and Brad Fash’s one match bans have been upheld, following an appeal made to the RFL’s Operational Rules Tribunal this evening.
The Operational Rules Tribunal upheld the one-match bans which had been imposed on the Hull players Jake Connor and Brad Fash at Monday’s meeting of the Match Review Panel.
In each case, the club had appealed the decision, but the ORT found the Match Review Panel grading to be correct – Connor of a Grade B high tackle, and Fash of Grade B dangerous contact, with both incidents in last Thursday’s Wigan versus Hull Super League fixture.
Neither appeal was ruled to be frivolous, so no further punishment was imposed.
The pair will miss Saturday’s Betfred Challenge Cup quarter-final against Wigan Warriors.
