RFL hand Gateshead Thunder prop Payne one-match ban
Gateshead Thunder captain Jason Payne has received a one-match ban from the Rugby Football League after he was found guilty of tripping.
Payne had pleaded not guilty to the Grade B offence, which took place in the club's 22-6 Championship One defeat by Doncaster on Sunday, 19 June.
The RFL fined the Castleford-born prop £50, and the player will miss Sunday's trip to Keighley Cougars.
Full-back Mitchell Stevens also misses out as he completes a three-match ban.
