George Flanagan handed eight-match ban for 'testicle attack'

Post by josie andrews » Tue Aug 13, 2019 8:47 pm

Bradford hooker George Flanagan has been given an eight-match ban for attacking the testicles of an opponent.

Flanagan, 32, was seen on video footage making contact with Toronto's French full-back Hakim Miloudi during the Bulls' 25-20 Championship defeat by the Wolfpack at Odsal last week.

Referee Scott Mikalauskas placed the incident on report and the Rugby Football League's match review panel referred to matter to an independent operational rules hearing.

Flanagan pleaded guilty at the hearing to the Grade F charge and, in addition to the eight-match ban which ends his season, he was fined £250

A Grade F offence is the most serious grading open to the review panel and carries a suspension of eight games or more.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
