Robert Hicks stripped of a game after Leeds-Warrington fixture

Robert Hicks will not take charge of any Super League fixture this weekend following last weekend’s game between Leeds and Warrington.

Hicks was criticised for his role as video referee after he allowed a 51st minute Josh Charnley’s ‘try’ after there was no clear evidence that the ball had touched the whitewash.

Of course, most of the debate has centred on the desire to eradicate an official’s on-field decision which led to Hicks eventually award the score.

But, the Rugby Football League (RFL) has acted and Hicks will not officiate this weekend – although he will be the touch judge for St Helens’ crunch clash with Catalans on Saturday afternoon.
