Cashmere suspended for Hull KR clash


Salford City Reds will be without prop Ray Cashmere for Friday’s Engage Super League Round 6 match against Hull Kingston Rovers after being suspended by the RFL Disciplinary Committee.

Cashmere was banned for one match and fined £300 after pleading guilty to a Grade A offence of punching Brent Webb of Leeds Rhinos in the 10th minute of last Friday’s match at Headingley Carnegie Stadium.

Harlequins RL centre Chris Bailey was found guilty of a Grade B offence of making dangerous contact with an opponent in the 74th minute. The panel took Bailey’s exceptional record into consideration in ruling that no suspension was appropriate. Bailey was instead fined £500 and warned over his future tackling technique.

Wigan Warriors second row Joel Tomkins had his appeal against a two-match suspension imposed on Tuesday evening for recklessly striking an opponent dismissed by the RFL Disciplinary Committee last night. The suspension still stands and the player was ordered to forfeit a £200 bond.

In the Co-operative Championship, Featherstone Rovers player Tony Tonks had his two-match suspension imposed for making dangerous contact in a Northern Rail Cup tie against Widnes halved on appeal.  The decision frees Tonks to play at home to Batley Bulldogs on Sunday.

In the Valvoline Academy, Salford player Jack Spencer and Huddersfield player Jamie Cording both received a one-match suspension and £50 fine for using foul and abusive language.
