Walmsley ban downgraded to one match

After appeal Alex Walmsley's two match suspension has been downgraded to a Grade B meaning he will now serve a one match ban.

Our prop forward had been adjudged guilty of a Grade C dangerous contact on Leeds’ Alex Sutcliffe in last week’s victory.

Walmsley accepted the dangerous contact, but challenged the panel’s grading.

On appeal, the RFL Tribunal downgraded the tackle from a Grade C ‘reckless’ to a Grade B  ‘careless’ meaning he will now only serve a one match suspension, rather than the original two.

Walmsley will therefore miss Friday’s Betfred Super League clash with Wigan.

He has also been fined £500.
