‘Leg-breaker’ perpetrator given a 12-month ban for three instances of serious foul play

Jake Wilson, who plays for the National Conference League club Thornhill Trojans, has been suspended for 12 months after an Operational Rules Tribunal found him guilty of three instances of serious foul play in a Betfred Challenge Cup tie at Doncaster on January 30.

Wilson pleaded guilty to one Grade F charge of Other Contrary Behaviour, and to a Grade D charge of intentionally standing on an opponent.

He was found guilty of a second Grade F charge of Other Contrary Behaviour.

In other Operational Rules Tribunals, Kyle Kesik of Keighley Cougars was found not guilty of a Grade C charge of using his knees in a Betfred Challenge Cup defeat at Hunslet.

His Keighley team-mate Dan Parker pleaded guilty to a Grade D charge of Other Contrary Behaviour in the same match, and has been suspended for four matches, and fined £75.

It follows a serious crackdown by the RFL on foul play with the precedent now being set for the rest of the season.
