Featherstone Rovers second-row forward Tim Spears has been suspended for two matches.

The RFL’s disciplinary panel found Spears guilty of the grade C charge of making dangerous contact with an opponent in the 46th minute of last Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship game at Hunslet Hawks.

Spears, who pleaded not guilty, was also fined £50.

He will miss Featherstone’s opening two Championship play-off ties.
