STEFAN Ratchford has escaped a ban despite being hit with a charge by the RFL's Match Review Panel.

The Wire's number one has been handed a dangerous contact charge for a late hit on the passer in the early stages of last night's 22-16 defeat to Leeds Rhinos.

However, as the charge is rated as Grade A with a zero-match penalty notice, Ratchford is free to take part in Wolves' trip to Hull KR on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Rhinos pair Liam Sutcliffe and Robert Lui will not face further action after their yellow cards at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Sutcliffe was sin-binned by referee Liam Moore for a high tackle on Warrington's Josh Thewlis while Lui followed him shortly afterwards for a professional foul.

However, the panel has deemed that a yellow card was sufficient punishment in both cases.
