Terry O’Connor calls for Super League star to be banned

Terry O’Connor wants to see Huddersfield Giants star Luke Yates banned.

Yesterday, Yates was yellow carded against St Helens for a low tackle where he hit around the knee.

This is a type of tackle that O’Connor hates and he wants to see any player doing them banned including Yates.

“I’m not a lover of them tackles I’ll be honest,” he said on Sly Sports.

“In fact, I despise those tackles when two players are holding the man up and you hit the standing leg from behind.

“People used to say you can hit the crease of the knee but when does your torso end up?

“It’s 10 minutes at least in the sin bin for me.

“I don’t want to be judge and jury over this but they have got pick up a ban.

“Sione Mata’utia was yellow carded for it against Leeds Rhinos last week and I was surprised he wasn’t banned.

“I have said it for a number of years now as these have crept into the game, they are just not needed.”
