Catalans Dragons prop Julian Bousquet has appealed against the four-match ban handed to him by the RFL.

Bousquet was suspended after pleading guilty to making a dangerous shoulder charge to the head of Salford's Theo Fages.

The incident happened just two minutes into the clash at the Salford City Stadium and left Fages unconscious for eight minutes.

Despite the horrific nature of the tackle, Catalans feel the suspension is unduly long and the appeal will be heard by the RFL's disciplinary panel on Thursday.
