Walker accepts one-match ban

Hull KR prop Adam Walker has accepted a one-match ban after being sent off for fighting with Salford forward Lee Jewitt.

Both players were dismissed in the final seconds of the Reds' dramatic 38-34 Super League home win over the Robins at the Salford City Stadium on Sunday.

The pair were charged with grade B punching offences by the Rugby Football League and the governing body has now confirmed Walker has submitted an early guilty plea.

That means he will not face a disciplinary hearing and will miss next Sunday's home clash with Warrington.

There has been no such confirmation for Jewitt and he could face a one or two-match suspension if found guilty at a disciplinary hearing.
