Clubb handed two game ban

Harlequins centre Tony Clubb has been handed a two match ban and fined £300 after being found guilty of an illegal tackle on Kyle Eastmond.

Clubb was charged by the RFL match review panel for the incident in his side’s defeat to St Helens on Saturday.

The panel felt Clubb had deliberately slammed Eastmond’s head into the ground and expressed concern his actions had the potential to cause serious injury.

Clubb will miss both Quins’ games against Bradford – this Sunday at Odsal and at The Stoop the following Saturday.

At the same Tuesday evening meeting, Salford forward Ian Sibbit was found not guilty of a high tackle on Warrington winger Brian Carney.

The disciplinary committee also ruled no further action was required against Ryan Clayton after the Castleford second row admitted tripping Wakefield half-back Sam Obst.

Clayton’s defence, that he put out his leg to stop the ball being kicked and charge it down rather than to trip Obst, was accepted by the committee.
