Hull’s Scott Taylor - who received a grade C charge for dangerous contact midway through the second period - was handed a one-match penalty notice.
The charge accused Taylor of causing “an unacceptable risk of injury” by using part of his body forcefully to twist, bend or otherwise apply pressure to the limb or limbs” of the Leeds player.
St Helens’ Jack Welsby will be available to face Rhinos on Friday after escaping punishment for a grade A high tackle in Sunday’s 24-6 win at Castleford Tigers.
A penalty try was awarded for the challenge on Tigers’ Jack Broadbent, but referee Liam Moore took no further action.
The panel’s minutes described the tackle as “careless” and stated Welsby had been “stepped and reaching” when he caught the Tigers man.
Wakefield’s Jorge Taufua and Wigan Warriors’ Liam Farrell were both fined £250 for grade B dangerous contact in their sides’ meeting last Friday, which Trinity lost 60-0.
Joe Wardle of Leigh Leopards received a £250 fine for grade B striking in a 14-6 defeat at Catalans Dragons on Saturday.
