Wakefield back-rower Kevin Proctor has avoided a suspension following his red card against Warrington during Super League Round 11. 

No players have received bans following the latest round of action.

Proctor, 34, was sent off in the second half at the Halliwell Jones Stadium following a high tackle on opposition full-back Josh Thewlis.

Wakefield were 12-12 at the time, and went on to fall to their 11th straight defeat of the season with a 32-18 scoreline to Daryl Powell’s side.

The ex-New Zealand international has been fined £250.

Following the defeat, Wakefield head coach Mark Applegarth admitted he was moments away from giving Proctor a breather, with the plan to bring Liam Kay back onto the field after the winger was forced from action through injury in the first half.

Three Leeds players were charged following their 22-12 defeat to Salford at Headingley Stadium.

NRL import and prop forward Sam Lisone received no further action for a Grade A dangerous tackle charge against Paul Rowley’s Red Devils.

Team-mates Richie Myler and Harry Newman were both fined £250 for Grade B other contrary behaviour and Grade B dangerous contact charged respectively.

St Helens centre and Tonga international Konrad Hurrell was also fined £250 following his side’s defeat to Catalans in Perpignan. The ex-Leeds man was charged with a Grade A for disputing a decision.

St Helens lost 24-12 to Steve McNamara’s side, despite leading 12-0.

Catalans forward Julien Bousquet was cautioned for dangerous contact, but did not receive a charge.
