Catalan Dragons prop Julian Bousquet and Castleford Tigers stand-off Rangi Chase were both suspended when they appeared before an RFL Disciplinary Tribunal this evening.
Bousquet was suspended for four matches after pleading guilty to making a Grade D dangerous shoulder charge to the head of Theo Fages of Salford City Reds in the second minute of a Super League Round Two fixture on Saturday.
Bousquet was also fined £300.
Chase was banned for two matches and fined £300 after being found guilty of making a reckless shoulder charge to the head of Leeds Rhinos full-back Zak Hardaker in the 63rd minute of the fixture at Wish Communications Stadium on Sunday.
Chase pleaded not guilty to the Grade B offence.
Widnes Vikings forward Ben Cross earlier accepted a one-match suspension after submitting an Early Guilty Plea to the Grade B offence of making a late tackle on Paul Wellens of St Helens in the 58th minute of his side’s 16-4 defeat on Sunday.
