Green was charged by the Rugby Football League's match-review panel with the grade B offence on his former team-mate Travis Burns, the St Helens stand-off, during his side's 24-20 win over the champions on Friday and submitted an early-guilty plea.

Green will be available for the Robins' Easter Monday home game against Huddersfield while centre Darrell Goulding will be eligible to play in both Easter fixtures after submitting an early guilty plea to a minor grade A trip on Saints centre Jordan Turner.

Co-pilot had been treated for suicidal tendencies

Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, who deliberately crashed a plane in the French Alps, killing 150 people including a man from Hull, had been treated in the past for suicidal tendencies.

German state prosecutors said today the co-pilot had been in a long period of psychotherapy for "noticeable suicidal tendencies" several years ago.

Several years ago before obtaining his pilot's licence the co-pilot was in a long period of psychotherapeutic treatment with noticeable suicidal tendencies."

The German prosecutors added that since then he had not shown any signs of suicidal behaviour nor aggressive tendencies in other visits to doctors.

There is still no evidence that the co-pilot in the French Alps plane disaster said anything beforehand about what he was about to do, the state prosecutor said.

Student Paul Andrew Bramley, who was 28 and from Hull, was onboard the plane travelling to the UK when the crash happened.
