“He’s lucky” – Hull FC star avoids red card after “dangerous” contact

Hull FC star Jack Ashworth has been sent to the sin bin after a tackle on former Hull FC Chris Satae.

He collided heads with the former Hull FC star and was sent to the sin bin. Sky Sports pundit Barrie McDermott said “he’s very lucky” to avoid a red and described it as “dangerous.”

McDermott was quick to compare the incident to the red card shown to St Helens star Mark Percival last night for a similar tackle.

It was made clear by the Sky commentary team that a decision on it being a yellow card or a red card was 50/50 and that it was nothing like the accidental head contact that saw Ashworth’s Hull FC teammate Fa’amanu Brown sent off against Warrington Wolves.

That was secondary contact whereas this was the initial contact which is presently outlawed in the sport.

Hull FC have shown some real guts throughout this Super League clash which they were widely written off for after only just getting over the mark against London Broncos to notch their first win of the season.

It took less than a minute for the Dragons to score as former Castleford Tigers star Mike McMeeken stormed through and teed up Jayden Nikorima to score after starting at fullback in place of Arthur Mourgue.

He touched down less than 40 seconds into the game and would later come off with a hamstring injury.

The Dragons extended their lead after a lovely move left to Matthieu Laguerre to slice through. But the Black and Whites got themselves on the score board when Fa’amanu Brown touched down a kick and would later have a try denied only just by scrambling defence.

Then came the Ashworth incident and he was sin binned as the Dragons kicked the goal to take a 14-6 lead into halftime. Hull FC did miss a penalty of their own.
