An independent tribunal handed down the following decisions following a series of hearings in Leeds on Tuesday evening:

Eloi Pelissier of Catalan Dragons was suspended for one match after being found guilty of Grade B striking in the 79th minute of a First Utility Super League fixture against St Helens on Saturday June 14. Pelissier, who pleaded guilty, was also fined £300.

Alex Walmsley of St Helens was suspended for one match after being found guilty of Grade B striking in the same incident. Walmsley, who pleaded guilty, was also fined £300.

James Roby of St Helens was fined £300 after being found guilty of making Grade B dangerous contact with Olivier Elima in the 10th minute of the same fixture. Roby pleaded not guilty.

Dane Manning of Halifax was suspended for a total of 10 matches after being found guilty of two offences committed in  a Kingstone Press Championship fixture against Leigh Centurions at Leigh Sports Village on Wednesday June 11.

The tribunal handed down a five-match ban after finding Manning guilty of Grade E intentional striking with the shoulder in a 54th-minute tackle on Leigh player Sam Barlow. Manning pleaded not guilty.

Manning was also suspended for five matches after pleading guilty to Grade D sustained punching in the 54th minute of the same fixture.

Liam McAvoy of Workington Town failed in his appeal against a three-match ban imposed last week after an independent tribunal found him guilty of making a Grade C reckless high tackle on Leigh Centurions player Sean Penkywicz in the 19th minute of a Championship match played on Sunday June 1.

A scheduled hearing to consider a charge brought against Barrow Raiders player-coach Bobbie Goulding from a Championship fixture against Doncaster at Craven Park on Sunday June 8 was adjourned and will now take place on Wednesday June 18.

Goulding is charged with the Grade E offence of disputing the decision of a match official using aggressive language and aggressive body language, and questioning the integrity of a match official in the 79th minute of the match.
