Hull FC man accused of biting in tough Hull KR clash by Elliot Minchella

16-4 down to bitter rivals Hull KR, Hull FC were up against it, but things were perhaps made worse when an accusation came from Rovers’ Elliot Minchella.

Brad Fash had taken in a big run, with Minchella’s arm around his mouth.

However, Minchella posted an official complaint against Fash for biting to referee James Child.

Child didn’t see it, but took the report on board with the disciplinary expected to have a look at it.

Hull FC also suffered a major blow as Andre Savelio was taken off by Brett Hodgson with a knee problem.

This is how both teams lined up before the game:
