PAULI PAULI has been handed a one-match ban for tripping in Monday night's 32-16 defeat at home to Batley Bulldogs.

The RFL's match review panel deemed Pauli's offence to merit a Grade 'A' charge and he will now miss York City Knights' Betfred Championship Summer Bash clash against Newcastle Thunder at Headingley on Sunday, July 31 (6.15pm).

The panel also reviewed a high tackle by the forward, who was sin-binned late on in the LNER Community Stadium clash, but deemed that the footage was "inconclusive" and gave no further punishment to the former Combined Nations All Stars international and ex-Super League and NRL star.
