Rochdale chairman Andy Mazey has been left frustrated after one of his players received a four-match ban.

Forward Zac Baker has been charged with a Grade D Dangerous Contact following Hornets’ clash at home with London Skolars, and the former Rochdale Mayfield amateur has been banned for four games and received a £75 ban.

Wakefield chief executive Michael Carter recently criticised the Rugby Football League’s disciplinary process after three players were banned following their clash with St Helens, while Catalans Dragons soon followed with their criticism of the operation.

Now, Mazey has added his frustrations, sharing on social media: “Just come away from a tribunal representing one of our players supported by our chief executive.

“Not going to comment publicly or say any more about it than that, however if I was to document my thoughts I’d probably just copy and paste Michael Carter’s recent comments…”

Barrow’s Jamie Dallimore is free to play following allegations of biting, as the scrum-half received a Grade E, charged with other contrary behaviour, but was found not guilty.
