Footage revealed of Huddersfield Giants star Danny Levi’s bizarre ban

Huddersfield Giants’ Danny Levi has been an incredible signing since joining in the off-season from the NRL.

The hooker has been in fine form, steering the Giants around the field against Toulouse Olympique and then Hull KR at the weekend.

But, Levi will have to sit out the next two Huddersfield fixtures after he was given a two-match ban by the RFL’s Disciplinary Match Review Panel.

Levi was cited for a Grade C charge of ‘Pulling at injured player’ – “Law 15.1(i) Behaves in any way contrary to the true spirit of the game (includes Dangerous Contact) – Other contrary behaviour Grade C.”

The video, taken from Facebook page Rugby League Banter Page shows Levi lightly pulling an injured player as he was on the ground.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, overcame Hull KR, 26-12, on Sunday afternoon.

And, the Giants head coach Ian Watson was rightly happy after watching his side put Hull KR to the sword in an impressive victory.

The Giants led 16-0 at half-time to then extend their lead to 20-0 shortly after the break.

Whilst Hull KR threatened a comeback with two tries from Brad Takairangi and Mikey Lewis, a late Chris McQueen put the icing on the cake for Huddersfield.

And, Watson was thrilled – especially with his side’s first-half showing.

“I thought first-half we were outstanding, we wanted to make sure we started strong in this game and we started outstanding,” Watson said.

“I thought the players backed each other to the hilt – you just want them to play for each other and show the kind of pride we want from this club going forward.

“I think we’re starting to see a Huddersfield team that are working hard for each other and competing and that’s the biggest thing I want them to do – they did that today and they got the rewards from that.”
