Warrington’s Blake Austin escapes charge for tackle on Joel Tomkins
Warrington half-back Blake Austin has been cleared of any foul play on Joel
Tomkins after the Hull KR captain was taken to hospital with concussion during
Saturday’s Super League game.
Austin, Warrington’s marquee signing who was making his second league appearance for his new club, was sent to the sin bin following the clash with former Wigan forward Tomkins 27 minutes into his side’s 28-14 win.
The Rugby Football League’s match review panel ruled that contact from Austin was accidental and that the yellow card was sufficient punishment.
