On-loan York winger James Clare has picked up a suspension for the second time, after picking up a one-match penalty notice.

Clare picked up the suspension after being sent to the sin bin during the Knights’ 40-4 to Leigh on Sunday. Clare caught Joe Mellor high, which proved to be a turning point in the match. He was charged at Grade B.

Also picking up a suspension is Newcastle forward Brad Gallagher. He will also sit out one match after being charged with Dangerous Contact during the Thunder’s 40-24 win over Whitehaven on Sunday. He was also charged at Grade B.

The third player to receive a suspension is Widnes forward Kenny Baker. He was charged with Dangerous Contact during the Vikings’ 36-10 win over Dewsbury on Monday night. Like Gallagher, he was also charged at Grade B and will sit out one match.

Finally, Vikings forward Tyler Dupree was also charged by the disciplinary panel. He was charged with a careless High Tackle during the same match. However, he will not serve a suspension after being given a zero-match penalty notice. He was initially charged at Grade A.

No other cautions or charges were handed out this week.
