IT was a mixed bag for Leigh Leopards at this evening's independent Operational Rules Tribunal for the three players they had up following incidents in the Round One Betfred Super League game against Huddersfield.

Jack Hughes successfully challenged a Grade B Dangerous Contact charge from the fixture against Giants. He was found not guilty, meaning a punishment of a £250 fine no longer applies.

Prop Tom Amone had been charged with Grade C head contact following an incident in the same Round One fixture, but the charge was amended to a Grade B.

Amone’s challenge against the Grade B charge was rejected, meaning he will serve a one-match suspension, with a £500 fine.

Ricky Leutele successfully challenged a Grade C head contact charge, again from the Round One fixture, which would have carried a one-match suspension. His not guilty plea was upheld.

Elsewhere, Sam Lisone of Leeds Rhinos was unsuccessful in his challenge against a Grade D head contact charge following last Thursday’s Round Two fixture at Hull KR. He must therefore serve a three-match suspension, with a £250 fine.

Liam Sutcliffe of Hull FC was unsuccessful in his challenge against the grading of a Grade D charge of contact with a match official in last Friday’s Round Two fixture at Warrington. He must therefore serve a two-match suspension, and pay a £250 fine.
