Former Super League star facing mammoth ban after altercation with match official

Former Leeds Rhinos, Castleford Tigers and Huddersfield Giants star Brett Ferres is facing a mammoth ban.

The backrow left Leeds Rhinos at the end of 2019 which ended his Super League career which included a Grand Final win with the Rhinos against former club Castleford Tigers in 2017.

Ferres joined Featherstone Rovers but had one last hoorah in Super League with Leeds in 2020 as he joined the club on loan due to the pandemic alongside James Harrison.

After his time at Fev ended last year he joined Doncaster but he has now been slapped with a Grade F charge of contact with the match official.

In the minutes from the match review panel, Ferres has been accused of “intentional contact with the match official” following Doncaster’s meeting with Dewsbury Rams.

The Rams’ Bradley Graham has been hit with a one match ban from the same game.

This comes after nine bans were given out in Super League including a ban going the way of Matty Lees after a tribunal and Ferres’ case will also be heard at a tribunal where he could face one of the longer bans we have seen this year given his Grade F charge.

Following the latest round of Betfred League One fixtures, the Match Review Panel have issued the following sanctions:

Brett Ferres – Doncaster – Contact with Match Official – F – Refer to Tribunal
Bradley Graham – Dewsbury Rams – Dangerous Contact – C – 1 Match Penalty Notice
Callum Turner – Dewsbury Rams – Other Contrary Behaviour – B – £40 Fine
