Keighley player-coach Paul March has been suspended for four matches for questioning the integrity of a match official.

The 34-year-old former Wakefield and Huddersfield utility player denied the offence, which occurred during the Cougars’ 30-12 Kingstone Press Championship defeat at Doncaster on February 23, but he was found guilty at a Rugby Football League disciplinary panel tonight.

March, who was also fined £100, will sit out three league games and Keighley’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup third-round tie against Cumbrian amateurs Wath Brow Hornets.
