West Wales Raiders player to receive ban for contact with referee

West Wales Raiders forward Michael Holden will be given a two-match ban for making contact with the referee.

The incident featured in the 41st minute of West Wales’ 96-0 home demolition to Swinton Lions.

He was charged with a Grade C ‘Deliberate or reckless physical contact with the match official’ which will yield a two-match ban.

It’s the latest notice by the Rugby Football League that they are set to crack down on incidents during games in order to protect both the officials and players to a greater extent.

That’s especially true for late hits on the ball-player, with the governing body determined to stamp it out.
