Bradford Bulls’ David Foggin-Johnston handed huge ban following horror high tackle in Leigh cEnturions defeat

David Foggin-Johnson will miss Bradford Bulls’ next five games following this evening’s independent tribunal adjudication.

Foggin-Johnson was referred to tribunal by the Match Review Panel for a Grade E high tackle offence committed during the recent Betfred Championship match against Leigh Centurions. He admitted the offence, but was unsuccessful in challenging the grading. Foggin-Johnson was also fined £250.

Thatto Heath’s Jamie Tracey was successful in contesting a Grade D charge of punching during his side’s pre-season friendly with Salford Red Devils Reserves. The player was found not guilty.

The Bradford winger hit Leigh hooker Aaron Smith round the head and Aaron Moore duly sent ‘DFJ’ off the field in the last minute.

Bradford eventually succumbed to a 38-4 defeat, but the evening was marred by the horrific late shot on Smith.

The Bulls had held the Centurions to just an 8-4 lead at half-time, but Leigh, obviously buoyed by Adrian Lam’s half-time words in their ear, came out the blocks firing on all cylinders in the second-half.

Leigh registered 34 unanswered points to steamroll their way to an emphatic victory over their play-off rivals and make it two wins from three games on a lush surface at the Leigh Sports Village.
