Incident placed on report as London Broncos make another ‘unacceptable language’ allegation

London Broncos

London Broncos were in an arm wrestle match with Salford Red Devils with the visiting Broncos just 6-0 down to Paul Rowley’s side in a scrappy but competitive game when it was marred by an incident being placed on report.

It’s not the first time that a referee has had to place an incident on report in a London Broncos game with Chris Kendall doing so in the clash between London and Hull FC back in May.

That incident saw Herman Ese’ese alleged to have used ‘unacceptable language’, something that the prop was finally cleared of last week with the RFL and Hull FC releasing a joint statement to confirm that all charges had been “unequivocally withdrawn”.

London have claimed that they’re seeking legal action regarding that though which means the case could be re-opened potentially.

Onto today though and once again, a London Broncos player has made an allegation of ‘unacceptable language’, which has again gone on report. This time it was French centre Hakim Miloudi who complained to referee Liam Rush about something that a Salford Red Devils player said.

With the game just 6-0 to the hosts and London more than holding their own in the game, Hakim Miloudi was taking a big carry down the middle of the field before being tackled by two Salford players.

At that point, Miloudi removed himself from the play the ball and headed over to referee Liam Rush to explain with the Sky Sports microphones picking up what the centre said to the referee.

“He’s saying French c**t,” Miloudi claimed, before being told not to repeat it by Liam Rush.

Liam Rush quickly moved to dissolve the situation by removing the players from one another and then bringing in Salford captain Kallum Watkins.

Rush explained: “There’s been an allegation of unacceptable language. It will go on report.”

“I haven’t heard anything and neither has the touch judge so it will go on report.”

He would then again explain to Miloudi the process that will occur, stating: “Hakim, listen, it will now be investigated. You need to keep your head.”

Since that point, London have twice been opened up with the Red Devils now leading 16-0 after tries from Deon Cross and Nene Macdonald.
