SAINTS have been unsuccessful in a second appeal with the Operational Rules Tribunal against a one-match penalty notice handed to Moses Mbye.

Mbye was issued a Grade B ‘Dangerous Contact’ charge on Monday (8th July) by the Match Review Panel following the Saints’ Round 16 Betfred Super League fixture against Castleford Tigers.

Saints appealed the charge on Tuesday night with the Operational Rules Tribunal, but was unsuccessful. St Helens believed there was an argument over that decision so sought to appeal again tonight however the decision for the one-match penalty notice continued to be upheld.

Following the outcome of tonight’s appeal with Mbye unavailable for selection, Will Roberts has been added to complete the 21-man squad selection.

For Roberts it is the first time he has been in the First Team 21-man squad in 2024 after becoming a First Team Saint this season.
