After viewing video evidence, Oldham’s former Widnes winger Lucas Onyango was banned for two games for illegal use of the forearm on an opponent. Onyango was found to have struck a Swinton player in the face with his forearm whilst in possession of the ball. He has also been fined £50.
Matt Thomas of London Skolars was banned for one game and fined £50 after pleading guilty to a high tackle during Skolars 16-16 draw with York City Knights in the Northern Rail Cup game on 20th February.
