Watch: When Marwan Koukash and Derek Beaumont went to court over Gareth Hock

Koukash Beaumont Judge Rinder

It’s over four years ago now since we witnessed a slightly surreal situation on prime daytime TV between two former Super League owners.

Marwan Koukash and Derek Beaumont went to battle on the popular ITV show Judge Rinder to settle a dispute over a £5,000 payment involving Gareth Hock.

Their appearance on Judge Rinder split opinion at the time, with many rugby league fans feeling slightly embarrassed by the whole episode.

Koukash and Beaumont maintained afterwards that it would help publicise the sport, although both admitted that they remained friends and there was no malice involved.

Watch below as Judge Rinder has the final say on the matter before the two argue about the result of the case, with Marwan accusing Derek of lying in court.

The two have remained good friends ever since, with Koukash teasing a return back in August of this year with the Leigh Centurions.

That, however, has gone quiet recently with Koukash appearing to spend more time on his horses as well as his hotels whilst Beaumont attempts to build a team at the Centurions worthy of a place in Super League following the club’s relegation in 2021.
