Super League star set for ban says Phil Clarke

Today the Match Review Panel will meet to consider the action from the latest round of Super League.

Among the incidents they will consider is a tackle from Catalans Dragons Loanee at Hull KR Fouad Yaha who clattered Max Jowitt with a harsh but what many felt was a fair tackle that the officials deemed a little too harsh, sending him for 10 minutes.

It was this tackle that has outraged a few fans.

Meanwhile, former Super League official Richard Silverwood has labelled it “pathetic” and said “the game will gone very soon.”

Silverwood shared a screenshot of the incident with the comment:

“Absolutely pathetic. Arms wrapped, perfect tackle but unfortunately clash of heads. Game will be gone very soon.”

It will be interesting to see what the panel make of the incident.

He wasn’t the only player yellow carded in that game with David Fifita sin binned for a tackle on Mikey Lewis which caused him to have a Head Injury Assessment.

Huddersfield Giants Innes Senior was also sin binned against Leeds Rhinos but this will likely be deemed no more than a professional foul.

Teammate Kevin Naiqama will also likely dodge a ban for a trip with it being accidental.

James Harrison of Warrington Wolves could also face a nervous wait after a yellow card of his own for a tackle against Castleford Tigers.

It is this tackle that Barrie McDermott described as: “A bad one that. James Harrison is a big man as well. It is a hip drop.”

Meanwhile, Phil Clarke believes Harrison will get banned for the tackle compounding Warrington’s problems in the middles: “I think he will miss a few games.”
