Ferriol banned for three matches

Catalan Dragons forward David Ferriol has been suspended for three matches after he appeared before the RFL Disciplinary Committee last night.

Ferriol has been found guilty of committing a Grade C offence for making a high and reckless challenge on Bradford Bulls player James Donaldson last Saturday.

The committee cited the potential for serious injury as an aggravating factor in the case and also handed Ferriol a £300 fine.

Wigan Warriors prop Andy Coley will miss Wednesday’s Engage Super League game against Castleford Tigers after he was handed a one match suspension for committing a Grade A running in and punching offence during Wigan’s victory over Leeds Rhinos.

Both Burrow and Coley were also fined £300 by the Disciplinary Committee.

Castleford Tigers forward Jacob Emmitt and Warrington Wolves player Michael Cooper have both avoided suspension after they were brought before the committee charged with Grade A fighting offences during their Engage Super League clash on Friday.
