Hull KR player banned for four matches

Wednesday 10 Feb 2016 9:31am
John Boudebza of Hull Kingston Rovers has been banned for four matches for making Grade B dangerous contact on Michael Shenton of Castleford Tigers in the 27th minute of the First Utility Super League Round 1 fixture played at KC Lightstream Stadium on Sunday February 7.

The injury caused to Shenton was deemed an aggravating factor in this case and the Tribunal has the discretion to step outside of the normal grading ranges in the following circumstance:

If the Compliance Manager seeks a higher sanction in the light of specified aggravating factors, and the Tribunal agree that such factors mean a higher sanction should be imposed.
An Early Guilty Plea was available, however the Match Review Panel elected to withdraw this option as a serious injury was caused.

Boudebza, who pleaded not guilty, was also fined £300.
