Operational Rules Tribunal: Morgan Smithies

Wigan Warriors’ Morgan Smithies has received a four-match suspension after pleading guilty to a Grade D charge of Dangerous Contact with Castleford Tigers’ James Clare during last Saturday’s Betfred Super League fixture. 

The Tribunal also fined Smithies £500.

Smithies had already been issued with a two-match penalty notice by the RFL’s Match Review Panel in respect of a separate incident in the same game, so will now miss the next six matches.
