No further action against Sia Soliola and Jordan Turner high tackles
2:12pm Monday 17th February 2014 in Sport
THERE were no disciplinary charges laid against any of the Saints players involved in incidents in Thursday night’s win over Warrington.
Sia Soliola’s 32nd minute high tackle on Michael Monaghan was scrutinised, but no further action was deemed necessary.
The panel declared: “Player attempts to make a legitimate tackle. Tackle is high however attacker is dipping. Initial contact is with the chest. Penalty sufficient.”
Jordan Turner’s high tackle on Stefan Ratchford has also been deemed penalty sufficient, with the verdict being: “Contact is with shoulder first and player is reaching for his opponent.”
