Ward accepts early guilty plea

Stevie Ward has submitted an early guilty plea after being charged with making Grade A dangerous contact on Joe Arundel in the 34th minute of the fixture against Wakefield Trinity Wildcats at Headingley Carnegie Stadium.

The option to take an Early Guilty Plea is available to any player who has been charged with an offence of Grade A to C and who has not been found guilty of any other charge of on-field misconduct or who has not submitted a previous Early Guilty Plea in the 12 months preceding the date of the match in which the alleged offence took place.

Ward will be available for selection for this Sunday's trip to face the Salford Red Devils.
