Salford’s Rangi Chase has been banned for seven games following his tackle on Brett Ferres during the Good Friday game between The Red Devils and Huddersfield.
The England international stand-off was found guilty of a Grade E dangerous throw offence by an independent disciplinary tribunal on Wednesday night.
As things stand it means that Chase won’t play again until June and will miss the Magic Weekend in Newcastle at the end of May.
Ferres is likely to be sidelined for up to four months following Chase’s tackle and Giants’ head coach Paul Anderson was left fuming after the incident. He’s not in a good way,” he told The Huddersfield Examiner. “His syndesmosis ligaments are no longer.
“It’s disgraceful, it’s attacking the standing leg.”
Salford will also be without the services of Weller Hauraki, who was handed a four game ban for two separate incidents over the Easter period. The first was for recklessly striking Scott Grix in the Good Friday game and the second was for fighting with Wigan’s John Bateman in Easter Monday’s clash with Wigan Warriors.
