Huddersfield Giants’ Josh Jones has seen his two-game ban for punching reduced after a successful appeal.
Jones was hit with a suspension for his actions during a coming together with Hull FC’s Andre Savelio during last Thursday’s game at the John Smith’s Stadium, which saw the pair of them shown red cards.
Savelio received a three-game ban for throwing punches in the melee, before attempting to chase his former teammate down the tunnel.
Jones, on the other hand, received a more lenient two-game penalty notice.
However, after taking the disciplinary ruling to a tribunal, the Giants back-rower has seen his offence downgraded to grade B and his ban reduced to just one game.
While he has still been punished for throwing punches, he will now only miss Huddersfield’s next outing against Castleford Tigers on Monday evening.
He has also been fined £500 for his actions.
The Black and Whites chose not to appeal Savelio’s ban and they will be without him for Thursday’s game with Leeds Rhinos, as well as next week’s matches against St Helens and Warrington Wolves.
