Castleford player to face RFL Disciplinary Tribunal


10th September 2013


Castleford Tigers player Weller Hauraki will appear before an RFL Operational Rules Tribunal this evening charged with Grade A punching in the 31st  minute of the Super League Round 27 fixture against Wakefield Trinity Wildcats on Sunday September 8.

Ben Cockayne of Wakefield has submitted an Early Guilty Plea to a Grade A charge of punching in the same incident and loses the right to submit an EGP for 12 months.

Both players were charged after the incident was viewed by the RFL Match Review Panel, which also issued a formal caution to Jason Netherton of Hull Kingston Rovers for making dangerous contact with Erjon Dollapi of London Broncos in the 63rd  minute of a Super League Round 27 fixture.
