Hull FC’s Ligi Sao SENT OFF for horror swinging arm on Castleford Tigers’ Jake Mamo

Ligi Sao has been sent off for a swinging arm on Castleford Tigers’ Jake Mamo.

There was direct contact with the head as Mamo ran the ball back from a kick-off to make matters worse for Hull.

Hull FC took on Castleford Tigers at the MKM Stadium tonight as Lee Radford went up against his old side on his former patch for the first time.

It was a highly-controversial first-half with Castleford rushing into an 8-0 lead before Hull FC hit back with three tries to lead 18-8 after Derrell Olpherts and Connor Wynne were sent to the sinbin for a scuffle.

However, one of those Hull efforts – Darnell McIntosh – looked like a no try as referee Chris Kendall sent it upstairs to Liam Moore. Moore found there was sufficient evidence to overturn the no try decision despite it being incredibly tough to see any grass between the ball and the dead-ball line.

Olpherts replied for the Tigers before the break as Hull led 18-14 at half-time.

It was all Castleford in the second-half, though, despite having Jake Mamo in the sinbin for dissent, the Tigers scored three tries to lead 30-18.

Two more followed as Olpherts made it four and the Tigers made it 42-18, with Wynne sent to the sinbin again following Olpherts’ hat-trick.

This is how both sides lined up:
