Castleford full-back Jordan Tansey has been given a three-match ban for making deliberate physical contact with a referee.
Tansey, 27, was charged by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel after pushing Tom Roby in the back during the first half of the Tigers’ 19-16 First Utility Super League win over Hull FC on Sunday.
The former Leeds player was found guilty of the grade C offence when he appeared in front of a disciplinary hearing at Red Hall on Wednesday night and was fined £300 as well as being suspended for three games.
Meanwhile, Hull prop Micky Paea has lost his appeal against a two-match ban.
The suspension, imposed on Tuesday for a grade B dangerous tackle on Castleford winger Richard Owen, was upheld by an RFL disciplinary appeals panel.
This decision came despite a letter of support from Tigers head coach Daryl Powell, saying that there was nothing wrong with Paea’s tackle.
