Lomax and Graham free to face Wakefield

Jonny Lomax and James Graham are both available to face Wakefield Trinity on Friday after receiving 0 match penalty notices following Grade A charges in the victory over Wigan last week.

Lomax was shown a yellow card and sent to the sin bin after a tackle on Wigan’s Harry Rushton in the 69th minute and was charged with “lifting opponent into a dangerous position.”

In accordance with the RFL’s On Field Sentencing Guidelines, the Panel considered the offence a Grade A (Dangerous Throw – Lifting player into a dangerous position), which carries a 0 – 1 match suspension.

However, Lomax’s previous good disciplinary record means he will serve a 0 match penalty notice.

Saints’ prop James Graham was also served a 0 match penalty notice after the panel reviewed an incident which occurred in the 20th minute with Wigan’s Jack Wells and Alex Walmsley.

Graham was charged with a Grade A “contact with the head and/or spinal column of the tackled player”.

Again, like Lomax, Graham’s disciplinary record over the past 24 months means he escapes a charge and is free to play against Wakefield on Friday.

Tommy Makinson has also now served his five match suspension and could feature on Friday.

Kristian Woolf will name his squad for the clash against Wakefield (Friday, 5:30pm) at Emerald Headingley Stadium on Wednesday.
