Hull beat Castleford 30-12 last night, but one of the main talking points was the injury to Alex Foster.
The utility man visited hospital after suffering a neck injury from a Marc Sneyd tackle that went unpunished by referee Robert Hicks.
The Castleford club doctor took his Twitter followers through the procedure necessary to ensure Foster’s safety. But, should Sneyd have been punished?
For fans interested – Here’s a thread on why we boarded off a player, who was already stood up?
First, we need to look at mechanism. You can that he takes an axial force to the top of his head and hyper-flex’s his neck. Both are known mechanisms for cervical spine injuries pic.twitter.com/bIENahKjbR
