Update on the “further investigation” into Super League star after allegation

This week as the disciplinary came out the focus was on Leeds Rhinos after their fiery affair with St Helens.

James McDonnell was the only player banned picking up a two match suspension for punching but at a tribunal that was over turned.

However, there was another talking point.

Warrington Wolves star Josh McGuire was “referred for further investigation” after he was cited for “unacceptable language.”

McGuire was suspended for a huge seven games after a red card in pre-season against Leigh Leopards in which he was deemed to have used unacceptable language.

It is unknown where this investigation will lead.

It was also unknown how it would be carried out but an RFL spokesperson has explained what would happen next in the case on Monday.

He said:

“Leigh Leopards have until close of play Tuesday to make any submissions.

“That means there wouldn’t be any decision made in time for a case to go to an Operational Rules Tribunal tomorrow.

“So it would be next week before it’s considered – if there is a charge and that depends on Leigh.”

Now Tuesday has been and gone, Serious About Rugby League can confirm that the case will be considered by the Match Review Panel next Monday.
