Hull FC fans bizarrely set up Go Fund Me page to pay Josh Griffin fine

Hull FC star Josh Griffin was stunningly sent off against St Helens at halftime in a Challenge Cup quarter-final at the MKM Stadium.

The centre turned backrow scored Hull’s opening try in a great first half for Tony Smith’s men which saw them level at the break with the Super League and World Champions St Helens.

However, frustrated with a decision from official Chris Kendall, Griffin had an altercation with the official.

He was yellow carded and then red carded.

The Match review panel hit him with a Grade F charge for questioning the integrity of a match official.

He has now learned his verdict.

Griffin has been suspended for seven games and fined £1000 after being found guilty of a Grade F offence of ‘questioning the integrity of a match official’ by an Independent Tribunal as confirmed by the RFL and Hull FC.

Griffin pleaded guilty but challenged the grading – the grading was found to be correct.

Bizarrely, a Go Fund Me page has now been set up by Hull FC fans to help pay the fine.

A bizarre turn of events which does show the passion of Hull FC fans.

That said, the sport has to have a policy of standing against dissent towards officials and coach Tony Smith has admitted himself that Griffin shouldn’t have done what he did.
