I think its definitely a ploy to use up a few games of his ban, especially as he can also count the pre tournament friendly. Guess they didn't need to include Knowles as his 2 matches will be eaten up by the GF and the friendly.

Wigan Warriors forward John Bateman receives three-match ban after sending off in Semi-Final

He will miss England's opening World Cup game if selected in Shaun Wane's side

John Bateman has received a three-match ban for Dangerous Contact on Aiden Sezer during Wigan Warriors' semi-final defeat to Leeds Rhinos. The news comes hours after St Helens forward Morgan Knowles saw his Grand Final dreams shattered as the RFL upheld his two-game ban.

Bateman, who was controversially named in Paul Anderson's England Knights side on Tuesday afternoon despite essentially having no chance of being available to feature in either game, will serve the first of his three suspended for the Knights against France B in early October and the second will be taken up by England's warm-up game against Fiji on October 7, if he is named in Shaun Wane's 24-man squad for the World Cup next week.

This outcome effectively means the Wigan Warriors back-rower will only miss England's opening game of the World Cup against Samoa at Newcastle United's St James Park and will be free to play against France and Greece. However, as previously mentioned, the decision made by the RFL has raised eyebrows about the process that carries domestic suspensions carrying over to international games, with many people believing Bateman's ban should count for England's senior team.

The fact England and the RFL have exploited a loophole in their own disciplinary process has made a mockery of the whole system and has rightly enraged many people. Still, the blunt fact is the decision has been made now, and Bateman will likely feature for Shaun Wane's side by the end of the group stages and will be determined to prove the doubters wrong if he gets to represent England come October.

Many as I who.

Domestic bans for stuff like a high tackles should not impact internationals.

The only bans that should impact are ones for intentional misconduct (punch/close lines/ fingers up bums)

Given how infrequent internationals are, if international bans only counted on international games then you could have players banned from internationals for years on a 3 game ban!
