Joel Tomkins banned for 4 games


Joel Tomkins has been banned for four matches following this evening’s (Tuesday 1 June) independent Operational Rules Tribunal.

The Catalans Dragons forward had been referred by the RFL’s Match Review Panel for punching in the 78th minute of Saturday’s Betfred Super League game with Wigan Warriors.

Tomkins entered a guilty plea, but challenged the Match Review Panel’s grading of the offence. The tribunal found the ‘D’ grade to be correct.
