Josh McGuire’s case not over YET with big decision to make

Last week Warrington Wolves star Josh McGuire was “referred for further investigation” after he was cited for “unacceptable language.”

Yesterday it was confirmed that McGuire could face a huge ban for this offence.

This came as he was charged by the Match Review Panel this week with a Grade F charge.

He was referred to a tribunal tonight and was hit with a huge 12 match ban.

McGuire was suspended for a huge seven games after a red card in pre-season against Leigh Leopards in which he was deemed to have used unacceptable language.

It has also been revealed that McGuire entered a not guilty plea at the tribunal which started at 19:30 but the results were only released at 22:00.

Alongside his 12-match ban, McGuire was also fined £1000.

However, the situation is not over.

Though McGuire has missed the deadline to appeal to play this week against Huddersfield Giants, the loose-forward can still appeal the ban for next week.

He still has until next week to appeal the ban.

The deadline is next Tuesday meaning the situation around McGuire remains unsettled and it is unlikely that Warrington will make a decision about the former NRL star until an appeal is heard.
