Walton was found guilty of a Grade C dangerous throw during Batley’s defeat against Leigh Centurions a fortnight ago. However, coach Karl Harrison received some good news when scrum half Paul Mennell’s case was deemed to be ‘sending off sufficient’.
Harrison is hoping for an improved attacking display from his side, following last week’s 12-8 win at Hunslet Hawks.
He said: “We defended magnificently, but with the ball in hand we were a million miles away from where we should be.”
“We’ve had a bit of knock back last week (Gateshead lost 82-0 at Workington), but we’ve just got to believe in what we’re doing and keep working hard.”
