The Rugby Football League has lifted the ban imposed on Rochdale Hornets' sporting director John Stankevitch.

Stankevitch has agreed to pay the outstanding fines that were handed to him for abusing match officials.

A tribunal suspended Stankevitch from all involvement in rugby league matches until the fines were paid.

Stankevitch stepped down as coach of the Championship One club last month, but stayed with the Hornets in a new role as sporting director.
