Hull FC man escapes ban as disciplinary minutes reveal all on tackle on St Helens’ Jack Welsby

Hull FC were cut down to 12 men twice in their 38-6 loss to St Helens on Saturday afternoon.

Live on Channel 4, the conditions at the MKM Stadium were horrendous with thick snow falling down on a boggy surface – it wasn’t exactly conducive to free-flowing rugby.

But, Saints did their utmost best to throw the ball around, going into the break 20-0 up and conceding just one try.

There were, however, a few talking points from the game which are still being talked about today – especially following the results of the minutes from the RFL’s Disciplinary Match Review Panel.

Hull FC star Connor Wynne was given a yellow card by referee Chris Kendall in the 18th minute for a ‘dangerous throw.’

But, Wynne has not been charged for anything more, instead, the minutes have recorded that: “Player is not lifted into a dangerous position. Player holds a leg in a stationery tackle. Opponent contributes and rolls himself to the floor.”

That opponent was Jack Welsby who enjoyed a stellar day our in East Yorkshire.
