Bradford Bulls hooker George Flanagan has been handed a 10-match ban after being found guilty of an attack to the testicles.
The incident, which happened in the 32nd minute of Bradford’s Challenge Cup defeat at Featherstone Rovers, was the second time he has been caught doing the same offence.
He was handed an eight-match ban back in 2019 after a similar offence on Toronto Wolfpack’s Hakim Miloudi. It was only his fourth competitive game after coming back from that ban.
Flanagan pleaded not guilty to the offence but was found guilty. In addition, he was also fined £250.
Meanwhile, West Wales Raiders centre Jamie Murphy admitted his Grade E charge of a dangerous throw during his side’s Challenge Cup defeat against Widnes Vikings.
The tackle, which saw him sent off, also resulted in him getting a five match ban and a £75 fine.
Finally, Whitehaven’s Callum Phillips has been handed a four match ban for his dangerous throw on Michael Knowles during their Challenge Cup win over Dewsbury Rams.
Phillips pleaded guilty to the tackle, but challenged the grading. This challenge was unsuccesful, and he also got a £250 fine.
