Higson banned for five games

Leigh’s Adam Higson has been handed a five-match ban and fined £300 by the RFL for the high tackle that saw him sent off at Magic Weekend in Newcastle.

The 30-year-old was dismissed by referee James Child during the second half of the Centurions’ 36-22 Super League defeat by Salford for a high and late challenge on full-back Gareth O’Brien.

Higson was facing a suspension of up to eight matches after being charged by an independent match review panel with a grade E offence.
