Hull KR boss Tony Smith and Hull FC coach Brett Hodgson react to biting accusation

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.

Hull KR boss Tony Smith had his say after the game.

“I haven’t even inquired yet. I’m too joyous and I didn’t want to get to any negatives just yet,” Smith told Hull Live.

“That will be in the aftermath and a little bit tomorrow as well. I didn’t even ask him so apologies I haven’t got that settled yet.”

Brett Hodgson then had his own say on the issue, stating: “I don’t know what happened. I don’t know why the referee called the touch judge in so I’ll have to wait and see what happened there I’m afraid.”
