Brough charged for Ablett punch

Leeds Huddersfield Betting

Huddersfield Giants playmaker Danny Brough has been given a Grade B Punching charge after an altercation with Leeds forward Carl Ablett on Friday night.

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

The 34-year-old does not have an Early Guilty Plea available to him and is now at risk of missing some crucial matches in the Giants season.

In a quiet week for disciplinary, Castleford Tigers forward Matt Cook received a cation for a Dangerous Throw during yesterday’s match against the Catalans Dragons.
