Weyman gets second ban


3rd June 2014

Hull KR's Australian prop Michael Weyman has been handed a second two-match ban in his first season in First Utility Super League.

The 29-year-old former St George Illawarra forward, who was banned for a dangerous tackle earlier this year, was found guilty of using foul and abusive language to referee Tim Roby during Rovers' 54-12 defeat at Castleford Tigers on Sunday.

Weyman, who was sent off for the offence and subsequently charged by the Rugby Football League's match-review panel, was given a £300 fine as well as a two-match ban when he appeared in front of an RFL disciplinary tribunal in Leeds.

Meanwhile, Leeds Rhinos forward Carl Ablett will lose his ever-present record this season after being handed a two-match ban.

The second rower admitted kicking Warrington Wolves centre Joel Monaghan in the act of scoring during the Rhinos' 24-6 defeat at the Halliwell Jones Stadium last Friday.

Ablett, who has not missed a game since last June, will sit out Leeds' Tetley's Challenge Cup quarter-final against Leigh on Friday as well as the league game against Huddersfield Giants on Thursday week.

Wakefield Trinity Wildcats prop Richard Moore will miss his club's home game against London Broncos on Friday week after admitting a Grade B striking offence during his side's 20-12 defeat at Bradford Bulls last Sunday. He was given a one-match ban.
