Catalans Dragons forward Gil Dudson hit with lengthy ban for punching against St Helens

Catalans Dragons forward Gil Dudson has been hit with a three-match ban for punching following the French side’s loss to St Helens last Thursday night.

The incident happened in the first minute of the game with Dudson being given a yellow card for his involvement in the issue.

And, now he will sit out Catalans’ next three fixtures as well as receiving a hefty fine.

The RFL tweeted: “Catalans Dragons forward Gil Dudson has pleaded guilty to a Grade D charge of punching in their recent fixture with St Helens, and has received a three match suspension with a £500 fine.”

Dudson’s tribunal hearing concluded tonight.

Gil Dudson, one of Catalans’ starting props, ran the ball in at a number of St Helens defenders before Joe Batchelor came in against the Dragons forward.

Something happened on the ground and Dudson got up clutching his eye after forcing Batchelor off.

Dudson was accused of striking out in the tackle with touch judge Robert Hicks detailing to Moore that the Welsh enforcer should be given ten minutes in the bin for his indiscretion.
