Dewsbury forward Samy Kibula will not face a ban following a coming together with a ball boy.

The young forward, who is on loan at the Rams from Wigan, was involved in a melee in Dewsbury’s loss to Swinton, which a ball boy got caught up in.

Kibula was sent-off by the referee shortly after for punching Rob Fairclough. He has received a Grade A charge for punching Swinton half-back Fairclough, but will not face suspension.

His Dewsbury team-mate, Robbie Ward, has been given a two-match ban for a Grade B dangerous contact in the same game.

Elsewhere, Hull FC forward Levy Nzoungou has picked up a two-match ban for a Grade C dangerous contact.

London Skolars star Ronaldo Palumbo will serve a one-match suspension for a Grade B dangerous contact.
