Bradford Bulls' Flanagan gets 10-game ban for 'attacking opponent's testicles'

Bradford Bulls hooker George Flanagan has been banned for 10 games after being found guilty of "attacking an opponent's testicles".

The incident occurred in the 32nd minute of the Challenge Cup clash with Featherstone Rovers on March 21.

Flanagan fined for "Grade F incident"

Flanagan, who denied the charge, was issued with the ban and a £250 fine after the Rugby Football League's match review panel referred the matter to a tribunal.

The RFL described it as a "Grade F incident", the most serious grading.

Flanagan was given an eight-match suspension in 2019 for a similar incident involving Toronto Wolfpack's Hakim Miloudi.
