Ryan McGoldrick can play for Hull at the weekend

Hull's new signing Ryan McGoldrick has won his appeal against a one-match suspension imposed for pushing a referee.

McGoldrick was punished for making contact with Tim Roby during his debut for Hull in last Friday's 21-6 Stobart Super League defeat at Leeds.

He contested the verdict and the Rugby Football League's disciplinary committee lifted the suspension on Wednesday night, although his £300 fine stands.

McGoldrick is free to play for Hull in Saturday's re-arranged Super League match against Catalan Dragons in Perpignan.

Catalan prop David Ferriol will miss that game after being given a two-match ban for a high tackle during his side's 15-6 defeat at Warrington on Monday night.

Ferriol, who admitted the grade B offence, was also fined £300.
