Super League Disciplinary: Four clubs facing suspension concerns

Super League Disciplinary

Round Seven of Super League is in the books and it was a significant one with Castleford’s first win, another Hull FC hammering and Catalans going top of the table, but as always there was a large number of Super League disciplinary issues.

Thursday night’s game saw Leigh Leopards welcome Wigan Warriors to the Leigh Sports Village and the club pulled in their Super League record attendance of 10,308. Unfortunately, for the majority of those attendees, it was yet another loss for the Leopards.

Eight different try scorers got on the board for Wigan as they won 40-12, responding brilliantly to their Good Friday Derby defeat, with the Leopards once again feeling the pinch with their huge injury list.

Castleford Tigers recorded their first Super League win of the season in a rollercoaster clash at The Jungle that saw Innes Senior run in four tries to help Craig Lingard earn his debut Super League win as a head coach by a score of 36-24.

Hull KR continued their impressive start to the season as they ran in nine tries to defeat London Broncos 50-10. Despite Jez Litten being rested, Matt Parcell deputized and scored a hattrick on his 200th career appearance.

The kicking problem may also be solved with Mikey Lewis converting seven from nine and Ryan Hall took another step towards becoming the all-time Super League try-scorer.

Warrington cemented their status as contenders by beating Leeds Rhinos 34-8 and condemning Rohan Smith’s side to their third successive home defeat.

Saturday’s action kicked off with Huddersfield running in ten tries to worsen Hull FC’s woes as Tony Smith’s side lost 56-22, the third time this season they’ve been hit for a half-century.

Adam Swift scored a hattrick against his former side and FC once again toed beyond the line when it came to discipline, earning three yellow cards including two for Ligi Sao, who will most certainly be a concern on Super League disciplinary matters.

Round Seven concluded with St Helens travelling to France to take on Catalans in a game that would decide who sits atop the Super League table. Unfortunately for the Red Vee, their poor form in Perpignan continued as they lost 14-8 marking their fourth consecutive loss away to the Dragons.

The question remains though of which men will be next to be added to the list of those banned and charged in Super League this season?

Plenty of focus will be on what if any, punishment Ligi Sao receives with the Hull FC forward shown two yellow cards in the second half against Huddersfield Giants with the Samoan forward having already been sent in front of the Super League disciplinary process this season.

Jack Brown was also sent to the bin in that game for a dangerous tackle, a charge that has warranted bans in recent weeks depending on the grading.

Leigh Leopards’ selection issues could worsen if Matt Moylan finds himself cited by the Match Review Panel, the Australian half being sent to the bin for a high shot on Jai Field which could warrant further Super League disciplinary issues for the joint-most carded side in the comp.

Salford hooker Amir Bourouh was another sent to the bin this week that could be in trouble, sent for ten for a dangerous lift and elsewhere Sam Luckley was shown yellow for a dangerous tackle early on in the Robins’ win.
