Amor avoids ban after red card

St Helens prop Kyle Amor has avoided suspension following his controversial red card against Wigan on Friday.

Amor was found guilty of a high tackle, but had his charge downgraded to Grade A, meaning he will be available for St Helens’ match at Widnes this weekend.

Huddersfield captain Danny Brough was handed a one match ban and a £300 fine for foul and abusive language towards a match official during their game against Catalans.

Widnes forward Chris Houston was found not guilty of a Grade D contact with match official charge during the Vikings defeat to Warrington.

Several players took early guilty pleas – resulting in suspensions for Warrington’s Daryl Clark (one match), Wigan’s Anthony Gelling (one match) and Leigh’s Gregg McNally, who was banned for two matches for contact with a match official.

Dec Patton (Warrington), Luke Gale (Castleford) and Sika Manu (Hull) all avoided suspension by taking EGP’s for their Grade A charges.

  1. What an absolute farce the disciplinary process is. Houston gets not guilty and McNally gets 3 game ban for lesser contact with a referee who is in the way

    • To be fair Jim, McNally pleaded guilty (to get the lesser sentence), whereas Houston pleaded not guilty. Had McNally pleaded not guilty he might have got off as well…
