Salford’s Dan Sarginson has had his two-match ban for a reckless high tackle on Hull FC’s Jamie Shaul overturned on appeal.

An independent tribunal decided that the tackle was ‘careless’ rather than ‘reckless’ and downgraded the offence from Grade B to A, which does not carry a suspension.

He will now be available to face Warrington in the Challenge Cup (Saturday 3 October) and Huddersfield (Thursday 8 October).

A tribunal decision on Sarginson’s team mate, Luke Yates, is expected later this afternoon. The forward is appealing against the one match penalty handed out by yesterday’s Match Review Panel for a Grade B Dangerous Contact with Danny Houghton during the same game.
