FRANCIS Meli has been banned for four matches and fined £300 after being found guilty of a Grade E offence during last Saturday’s Challenge Cup tie at Hull KR.
Jon Wilkin and Ade Gardner have also received bans following incidents in the same game.
Each accepted the Early Guily Plea option and will miss the next two and one matches respectively.
Meanwhile, Nathan Brown has been fined £500 after the RFL found him guilty of improper conduct and publicly criticising a match official following a Super League fixture against Catalan Dragons on Friday April 12.
Brown was found to be in breach of RFL Operational Rule D1.8 (c) (prejudicial conduct), Operational Rule D1.10 (i) (public criticism of match officials) and the sport’s Respect Policy.
He was instructed to pay £250 immediately with a further £250 suspended until the end of the 2014 season.
