Robins lose appeal against Tomkins ban

Hull KR have lost their appeal against Joel Tomkins’ one-match ban and seen the suspension extended to two matches.

Tomkins was issued with a one-game sanction after being charged with punching in the Robins’ defeat to London last week.

His club attempted to overturn the ban, but the original decision was upheld and the panel has chosen to add an extra match to the suspension as a punitive measure.
