Will Pryce has been sent from the field for Huddersfield Giants after a dangerous tackle on Hull FC’s Connor Wynne.
The offence occurred when Hull were 14-0 up with less than a quarter of the game to go.
Much has been said of the latest crackdown on foul play with a record number of cards being dished out so far in 2022.
One talking point this weekend was the yellow card to Castleford Tigers’ Mahe Fonua, who was given a ten-minute rest by referee Chris Kendall for a ‘late tackle’ on Wigan Warriors’ Jai Field.
By the time Fonua had settled back into the line, Castleford were down 28-6 and Lee Radford addressed that yellow card following the game.
“When Mahe Fonua was off the field we conceded 12 points and then we conceded shortly after too,” Radford said.
“It ruined our interchange a little bit, we’re not catching a break at the moment, but I’m not whinging, we’re working hard and I’m proud of them.
“It is what it is and we’re genuinely going to have to get better with 12.”
Even opposing boss Matt Peet was unhappy with the decision to send Fonua off for ten minutes.
“That one I find really difficult to take,” Peet said.
“For me, people need to put it in context about the speed the game is played at – when there is no malice then the player deserves to stay on the field.”
