SAINTS have won their appeal against Kevin Naiqama’s two match suspension meaning he is free to face Warrington in the Coral Challenge Cup on Saturday.

Naiqama has orginally been charged with a Grade C high tackle in the win over Hull KR on Friday and was handed a two match suspension.

But at an appeal tribunal this evening, his ban has been overturned meaning he will now be available for selection against Warrington and Wigan in two weeks time.

Naiqama accepted the original high tackle verdict, but challenged the panel’s grading.

The tribunal downgraded the tackle to Grade A and, whilst Naiqama has been fined £500, there will be no suspension.

Warrington Wolves' Tom Lineham has been suspended for eight matches and fined £500 after being found guilty of 'Other Contrary Behaviour' - a so-called squirrell grip, during his side's Betfred Super League fixture against Castleford Tigers last Thursday. 

The RFL's Match Review Panel yesterday determined that the Warrington Wolves winger had committed a Grade F offence and referred the incident to an independent tribunal. Lineham contested the decision, but the tribunal found it to be correct.

Jordan Abdull of Hull KR has been suspended for two matches after pleading guilty to a charge of Other Contrary Behaviour during last week's defeat by St Helens.

Abdull successfully challenged the grading of the offence as D, downgrading it to Grade C. He has also been fined £500.

Earlier today, Leeds Rhinos’ Alex Sutcliffe accepted his two-match suspension for dangerous contact, while teammate Brad Dwyer and Castleford Tigers’ Adam Milner accepted their one-game suspensions for Grade B offences.
