Super League Match Review Panel Decisions and Round Eight Highlights

Super League Disciplinary Decisions Loom Large

The Super League disciplinary process will once again take place today, and a number of teams may be anxious ahead of the Match Review Panel’s decisions. Round Eight brought an exciting set of fixtures, with notable results for Huddersfield Giants and Catalans Dragons, who remain two points clear at the top of the Super League table.

The Giants battled hard to beat Leeds Rhinos 30-24 at Headingley, while St Helens comfortably defeated Hull FC in a 58-0 demolition. Despite a promising performance, Castleford Tigers lost to Wigan Warriors again, and Leigh Leopards and London Broncos, both came close before eventually succumbing to Warrington Wolves and Salford Red Devils, respectively. In Perpignan, Catalans Dragons defeated Hull KR in a surprising fashion, winning 36-6 against one of the league’s most exciting sides.

“While Huddersfield celebrated their victory, they may wait with bated breath for a decision on Luke Yates, who was sin-binned in the first half for a high tackle on Luis Roberts.”

Salford were down to twelve men for a significant portion of the second half after King Viniyayawa was red-carded for a tip tackle on Marcus Stock, and he is likely to face a significant ban. London Broncos’ tough campaign could also be made tougher, as Will Lovell was sin-binned for a ‘dangerous tackle’ on Salford’s Tim Lafai. Matty Storton of Hull KR was sin-binned for a high tackle on Catalans’ winger Tom Johnstone and could face further action.

As seen in recent weeks, there could also be a number of seemingly-innocuous incidents from Round Eight that result in significant disciplinary decisions.
