Andre Savelio and Josh Jones banned following red cards


An altercation on the pitch between both teams

Forwards Andre Savelio (Hull) and Josh Jones (Huddersfield) have both been banned following their dismissals for punching during last Thursday’s Super League game at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Both players were dismissed by Chris Kendall following the final hooter after exchanging punches during a melee and charged with Grade C offences by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel.

Savelio was given a three-match penalty notice and Jones two games.

Wakefield second rower Jay Pitts has been handed a two-match ban for a Grade B dangerous tackle during his side’s defeat by Wigan while Salford duo Tui Lolohea and Sebastine Ikahihifo avoided suspension after being found guilty of Grade A offences in their team’s defeat at Leeds.

The panel issued cautions to Ligi Sao (Hull), Konrad Hurrell (Leeds) and Kelepi Tanginoa (Wakefield) for minor offences.
