Dane Manning hit with 10-game ban

Halifax forward Dane Manning has been hit with a heavy ban from the RFL, following an incident in the game with Leigh Centurions at the weekend.

Manning has received a five-game ban for the offence of Grade E intentional striking with the shoulder in a 54th-minute tackle on Leigh player Sam Barlow. Manning pleaded not guilty to that charge.

He was hit with a further five games in punishment for Grade D sustained punching, also in the 54th minute of the game with Leigh. Manning pleaded guilty to this charge.

Liam McAvoy of Workington Town failed in his appeal against a three-match ban, however. This was imposed last week after he was found guilty of making a Grade C reckless high tackle on Leigh player Sean Penkywicz in the Championship match played on Sunday June 1.

Meanwhile, Barrow coach Bobbie Goulding will have to wait a little longer until his case is resolved. Goulding is charged with the Grade E offence of disputing the decision of a match official using aggressive language and aggressive body language, and questioning the integrity of a match official, following his side’s recent clash with Doncaster.

His hearing was adjourned, and will take place later on Wednesday.
