Jamie Peacock claims another Hull FC star should have been sent off

Mark Percival has been forced off the field in St Helens’ Challenge Cup clash with Hull FC.

The centre was tackled by Brad Fash with the Hull FC forward landing on his head.

Fash’s arm and shoulder landed straight on Percival’s head as it collided with the ground effectively creating a sandwich where Percival’s head was the meat.

Fash was placed on report and St Helens took the two to take their lead out to 8-0.

They led 6-0 after a short Jack Welsby pass saw Joe Batchelor slice through and score.

There was contact with the head and some may feel like it could have carded.

Jamie Peacock certainly believes so.

The Leeds Rhinos legend stated that it should have been a red card:

“That’s a red card. If you give a penalty, there is shoulder contact. Given where the game is at at the moment, with looking after players.

“You can see there is a drop of a shoulder on him. There is intent there.”

At halftime, Josh Griffin was red carded for dissent towards Chris Kendall the referee.
