Joel Tomkins' four-game ban for punching Zak Hardaker
Former Wigan player Joel Tomkins has tonight been banned for four matches for punching Zak Hardaker.
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
Hardaker, who was red carded, was yesterday suspended for two matches.
