Jackson Hastings wants this out of rugby league immediately

Jackson Hastings

In rugby league there are a lot of clamp downs on dangerous tackles.

We have seen high tackles punished with greater severity and late hits penalised more.

Now a former Man of Steel has identified something else he wants stamping out of the game.

Former Salford Red Devils and Wigan Warriors halfback Jackson Hastings has said that he wants hip drops punished severely.

He took to Twitter to say:

“Hip Drops are dangerous.. how are they arguing if they should be penalised or not is beyond me.”

This comes as Hull KR skipper Shaun Kenny-Dowall slammed cannonball tackles on The Bench podcast:

“Mate when people come in below the knee it’s just horrible, my spine tingles every time someone does it.

“They’ve got to clamp down on it more.

“I just think having awareness as players about not going below the knee. If you’re going to go for the legs, go higher than the knee because it’s a massive risk for injury.

“Every time I see someone go down the spine tingles.”

Jon Wilkin then said: “Why’s it even in there anyway, just get it out.

This was when the centre said the tackle wasn’t policed harshly enough: “They do police it but not enough, I’ve seen some these last few weeks.”
