Super League Disciplinary: Hull FC’s woes worsen as forward duo are banned

Super League Disciplinary: Hull FC's Jack Brown leaves the field after being yellow carded

In the latest round of Super League disciplinary drama, Hull FC have been dealt two further blows.

They’re already the league’s most ill-disciplined side, with their seven yellow cards, three red cards and the highest number of bans in Super League.

Tony Smith’s side have had a dismal start to the season, with just one win, coming against London Broncos, and conceding a club-record number of points in the first seven games of the season.

At the weekend, they again conceded 50+ points to Huddersfield, losing 56-22.

This has led to speculation surrounding head coach Tony Smith’s job security.

With the Match Review Panel releasing their decisions this afternoon, below are the charges from Hull FC’s defeat to Huddersfield Giants.

Super League Disciplinary: Who has been banned for Hull FC?

Ligi Sao has been given a Grade B Dangerous Contact charge and has been given a one-match Penalty Notice, being at the higher end of the grade.

He was sent off after being given two second-half yellow cards, with one of those triggering an incident with Jake Connor on the benches.

Jack Brown has also been given a one-match Penalty Notice, also being at the higher end of a Grade B Dangerous Throw charge.

He was sent to the sin-bin during the match against Huddersfield for this challenge.

Added to this, Liam Sutcliffe has been handed a £250 fine for a Grade B Head Contact charge.

Since they’re out of the Challenge Cup, after losing 50-6 to Huddersfield, the banned players will miss an away game against St Helens on Friday 19 April.

They remain the side with the worst Super League disciplinary record.

Elsewhere, two other players were banned with Sam Luckley of Hull KR being banned for one match, as was Salford hooker Amir Bourouh, who was carded in their loss to Castleford Tigers.
