“It could have been eight matches” – How social media reacted to Gil Dudson ban

Last night both St Helens star Morgan Knowles and Warrington Wolves man Gil Dudson were given five match bans.

Knowles was banned for a dangerous tackle on Mike Cooper whilst Gil Dudson was banned for punching Tom Johnstone on Saturday.

Naturally these decisions sparked plenty of debate with some fans feeling Dudson’s ban should have been longer.

Many fans were left surprised by the fact Dudson only got one more game ban than Hull KR star Shaun Kenny-Dowall recently.

In fact, this was commonly brought up.

As people questioned this, it was pointed out that the Hull KR centre had a clean record prior to his ban whilst Dudson was recently hit with a ban at the end of his Catalans Dragons career.

Many were unhappy that Knowles and Dudson received the same length of ban.

Whilst a common question centred around Dudson’s recent offences and why they didn’t lead to the maximum punishment.

One fan felt he got off lightly and that he could have been given a six to eight match ban.
