Walmsley to miss one match

A charge of Grade C ‘Dangerous contact’ against St Helens forward Alex Walmsley has tonight been downgraded to Grade B on appeal.

An independent tribunal decided that the contact with Leeds Rhinos’ Alex Sutcliffe during the recent Betfred Super League match was ‘careless’ rather than ‘reckless’.

Walmsley will therefore serve a one, rather than two match suspension and will miss this Friday’s game against Wigan Warriors. He  has also been fined £500.
