Zeb Taia loses appeal against three match ban
11:00pm Thursday 8th August 2013 in Latest News
Catalan Dragons player Zeb Taia has lost his appeal against a three match ban imposed on him by an RFL Disciplinary Tribunal earlier this week.
Taia was handed the three match ban, plus a £300 fine, after he was found guilty of committing a Grade C reckless striking with the shoulder offence during Catalan’s Super League Round 23 game against St Helens on Saturday August 3.
Taia appeared before a Disciplinary Tribunal again this evening to contest the severity of the suspension, but after taking all submissions into consideration, the committee deemed the original sanction of a three match ban appropriate and ordered the forfeit of a £200 appeal bond.
