Castleford Tigers centre Jake Mamo has successfully appealed a one-match penalty notice after a disciplinary hearing.
Mamo was initially given the penalty notice, after a charge of disputing a decision by the referee during Castleford’s win at Hull FC last week. He was initially charged at Grade B for the offence.

Tanginoa was charged with a late hit at Grade A by the Match Review Panel, and will now miss Wakefield’s match against Castleford.
The Operational Rules Tribunal upheld the charge, but found the challenge to not be frivolous. So the one-match-ban still stands, and he also has to pay a £500 fine.
Wakefield will be hoping to build on their performance against St Helens, and get a result against their local rivals. They are currently bottom of the Super League table on points difference with seven games of the Super League season left.
