Webb banned for two matches

Leeds full-back Brent Webb has been suspended for two matches and fined £300 by the RFL Disciplinary Committee after being found guilty of a reckless high tackle in his side’s Engage Super League fixture against Warrington Wolves on May 14.
The charge for a Grade B challenge on Mick Higham of Warrington Wolves in the 68th minute had been brought after the incident was viewed by the RFL Match Review Panel.
The suspension rules Webb out of Sunday’s Engage Super League derby against Bradford Bulls at Grattan Stadium and Leeds’s Carnegie Challenge Cup quarter-final at home to Wigan Warriors on Saturday May 29.
Catalans Dragons prop David Ferriol was suspended for one match after being found guilty of punching Danny Washbrook of Hull FC in the 15th minute of last Saturday’s Engage Super League Round 14 fixture in Perpignan.
Ferriol, who had been found guilty of striking in an appearance before the RFL Disciplinary Committee earlier this season, was also fined £300.
Hull FC prop Ewan Dowes escaped suspension but was fined £300 after being found guilty of running in and punching Ferriol in the same incident.  The committee took into consideration Dowes’s previous exemplary disciplinary record in deciding not to impose a suspension.
