DANE Manning, the Halifax forward, has been banned for 10 games after being found guilty of two offences in last Wednesday’s game against Leigh.
An independent disciplinary tribunal handed down a five-match ban after finding Manning guilty of Grade E intentional striking with the shoulder in a 54th-minute tackle on Leigh player Sam Barlow. Manning pleaded not guilty.
Manning was also suspended for five matches after pleading guilty to Grade D sustained punching in the 54th minute of the same fixture.
Barlow spent a night in hospital being treated for head injuries.
Liam McAvoy of Workington Town failed in his appeal against a three-match ban imposed last week after an independent tribunal found him guilty of making a Grade C reckless high tackle on Leigh player Sean Penkywicz in the 19th minute of a Championship match played on Sunday June 1.
