Brough banned for Ablett punch

Danny Brough banned

Huddersfield half-back Danny Brough has been given a one-match ban and fined £300 for punching Leeds forward Carl Ablett during Friday’s Betfred Super League match.

Tempers flared when Ablett kept hold of Brough during a tackle, with the Scottish international reacting angrily before lashing out at the Rhinos player.

Brough pleaded guilty to the Grade B Punching charge and will miss the Giants next match against league leaders Castleford Tigers this Friday.
