The RFL disciplinary panel has accepted early guilty pleas from Featherstone Rovers players Ian Hardman, Tim Spears and Bradley Knowles-Tagg.

There will be no further action against any of the three players who are now free to play in Featherstone’s next Super 8s Qualifier at Batley on September 4.

All three were charged with grade A offences following incidents in Sunday’s game against Leigh Centurions at Big Fellas Stadium.

Spears and Knowles-Tagg were charged with a dangerous throw on Leigh’s Harrison Hansen in the 22nd minute.

The match review panel decided not to charge Hardman for his part in the same tackle on Hansen.

However, they charged Hardman with dangerous contact on Leigh’s Reni Maitua in the 48th minute.
