Castleford's Rangi Chase has ban reduced to one match

Rangi Chase
Chase must pay a £300 fine in addition to his reduced suspension

Castleford stand-off Rangi Chase can play in his side's Challenge Cup quarter-final against Huddersfield after having his two-match ban reduced.

Chase must still serve a one-game suspension after the Tigers appealed against the Rugby Football League's disciplinary panel's original ruling.

The New Zealander pleaded guilty to punching during his side's 34-30 Super League victory over Bradford on Sunday.

The 25-year-old will miss Saturday's Super League game against Crusaders.

The Tigers are aiming to retain their top-eight spot and claim a first Challenge Cup final appearance for 19 years.

On Tuesday, Bradford hooker Matt Diskin was cleared to play against Huddersfield this weekend after the panel issued him with a warning over use of the knees on Tigers winger Richard Owen in the same game.
