KEIGHLEY Cougars have three players unavailable due to suspension for Sunday's Kingstone Press League One trip to Workington Town.

In addition to James Feather, who was suspended for one game on Tuesday after submitting an early guilty plea, Josh Tonks and Hamish Barnes were banned by the Rugby Football League's disciplinary panel 24 hours later. 

Tonks, who was dismissed for a 36th-minute challenge on Connor Robinson in the defeat to York City Knights on Sunday, June 25, has been suspended for five games after being found guilty of Grade-D strikes with an arm.

The other two suspensions were as a result of the same match.

Barnes was charged with a Grade B intentional trip on Kieran Moran in the 65th minute.

He pleaded not guilty but was found to be so and has been suspended for one game.

Brad Nicholson was charged with a Grade A reaction tripping offence on Ash Robson in the 47th minute of the defeat to the Knights.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge but was found guilty by the panel.

Nicholson avoided a suspension and instead was fined £75.

Josh Lynam was not charged after being reported for a Grade A stamping on Robson in the 31st minute.

Feather was charged with a Grade B head butt following an incident involving Adam Robinson in the 15th minute.

Feather's early guilty plea was accepted by the disciplinary panel but he will not have one available to him again for 12 months.

York’s Kieran Moran was charged with a Grade C dangerous contact for a crusher tackle on Harry Aaronson, which resulted in him being sin-binned.

The Knights forward submitted an early guilty plea which was accepted by the disciplinary panel and he has been suspended for two matches.

Tonks, who like Barnes was fined £75, will not be available for selection until the fourth round of the Super Eights on Sunday, August 20.

Cougars’ head coach Craig Lingard, who is disappointed with York head coach James Ford complaining to the referee about the Cougars players, already has injury concerns over Scott Law, Ritchie Hawkyard and Brendon Rawlins.

Lingard said: “It is quite possible that we will have to look into dual registration with Batley and loans as the loan deadline for the Super Eights is coming up.”
