Disciplinary minutes reveal why Ben Currie was not banned after hit on Leeds Rhinos’ David Fusitu’a

Warrington Wolves managed to overcome Leeds Rhinos on Saturday afternoon, but there was a contentious point in the match that had numerous people talking about.

James Bentley had already been sent off for the Rhinos in the 16th minute for a high tackle on Warrington’s Gareth Widdop when Ben Currie hit David Fusitu’a round the head too.

However, Currie wasn’t penalised at the time and now it has been revealed why.

The RFL’s Disciplinary Match Review charged Currie with a Grade A high tackle – that means that the Warrington second-rower was charged with a careless tackle with the Panel deciding that Fusitu’a – who was carrying the ball – dipped into the tackle.
