The Catalans forward admitted the charge when he faces a disciplinary heading but challenged the Grade D charge.

But the tribunal felt the charge was correct and suspended him for four matches.

Tomkins was yellow carded for punching Hardaker in retaliation, after the Wigan full-back head butted Sam Tomkins (see embedded tweet) during his side's 48-0 Super League defeat at Catalans Dragons on Saturday
