Sykes handed two match ban

Bradford Bulls player Paul Sykes has been suspended for two matches after being found guilty of making a dangerous throw on Oliver Wilkes of Harlequins RL in an Engage Super League Round 21 fixture last Friday.

Sykes, who admitted to the Grade C offence in the 56th minute, was also fined £300 after the RFL Disciplinary Committee heard that the player had received a warning letter for a similar tackle in March.

The Committee handed down a one-match suspension to Ryan Boyle after finding the Salford City Reds forward guilty of a reckless high tackle on Wigan Warriors prop Stuart Fielden.

Boyle, who was sent off for the 20th-minute challenge at DW Stadium last Friday, was also fined £300.

Huddersfield Giants forward David Faiumu was fined £200 after being found guilty of a Grade A dangerous tackle that placed undue pressure on the shoulder joint of Nick Youngquest of Crusaders RL in the 38th minute of last Sunday’s game at Galpharm Stadium.

Faiumu pleaded guilty but avoided suspension after the Committee took into consideration his previous exemplary disciplinary record.

Dewsbury Rams player James Walker was suspended for two matches and fined £50 after admitting making a Grade B dangerous throw on a Toulouse Olympique player in the 48th minute of a Co-operative Championship fixture on July 3.

Doncaster prop Alex Benson was also suspended for two matches and fined £50 after being found guilty of a Grade B dangerous throw in the 71st minute of a Co-operative Championship One match at York City Knights on July 4.
