LEIGH Leopards have confirmed that they requested dispensation from the RFL to deal with the charges from their opening Super League fixture against Huddersfield Giants to be dealt with next week.

They had four players charged from the game.

Two of those have been banned - with Tom Amone picking up a Grade C Head Contact charge and a 2 Match Penalty Notice and Ricky Leutele a Grade B Head Contact charge and a 1 Match Penalty Notice.

Meanwhile Jack Hughes has a Grade B Dangerous Contact charge with a £250 Fine.

Zak Hardaker Grade B Dangerous Contact has resulted in a £250 Fine.

They asked for dispensation because they have no game at the weekend and their owner Derek Beaumont, who would deal with the presentation of defences to charges, is currently out of the country.

This has been granted by the RFL.

The club are making no further comment at this stage other than to thank the RFL for agreeing to the club’s request.
