Hull without duo for Challenge Cup quarter-final

Hull will be without Jake Connor and Brad Fash for Saturday’s Challenge Cup quarter-final against Wigan after they both lost their appeals against one-match bans.

Full-back Connor was charged by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel with a Grade B high tackle in last Thursday’s Super League defeat by Wigan while prop Fash was punished for a dangerous tackle in the same game.

An independent operational rules tribunal on Tuesday night upheld both decisions but the good news for the players was that neither appeal was ruled to be frivolous so no further punishment was imposed.
