James Bentley has been handed a one match ban after being found guilty of a Grade A offence in our win over Wigan Warriors in the derby on Friday.
The RFL Match Review Panel reviewed an incident which occurred in the 16th minute which resulted in Bentley being sent to the sin bin.
The panel have penalised Bentley for “striking – kicking – making light contact” with Wigan’s John Bateman, which has been deemed as a Grade A offence and a one match suspension.
The charge means he will subsequently miss Saints’ match with Leigh Centurions on Thursday. He will return for Monday’s clash with Warrington at the Halliwell Jones Stadium. Fans can buy tickets for Thursday’s clash with Leigh – who won their first game of the season on Sunday – by clicking here. Tickets for Warrington will be revealed in due course.
John Bateman has also been handed a one match penalty notice. He has been charged with a Grade A foul and abusive language in the 50th minute.
Wigan’s Willie Isa, who like Bentley and Bateman was also sent to the sin bin, has been banned for a total of four matches following a Grade A charge (1 match) on Regan Grace and a Grade C strike (3 matches) on Jack Welsby.
