Perhaps it wasn't on the field?

According to the citation it took place on the field in the 36th minute.

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

No one Ive spoke to saw it, but it wouldnt surprise me as he`s just a horrible piece of work on the pitch. Dropping elbows and knees into tackles, pretty much every time he was tackled he got up indignant as though it was wrong of mere mortals to put him on his ass. Simply put, he`s a #####.

"Widnes Vikings forward Hock has been charged with a Grade D offence of making deliberate physical contact with the referee in the 36th minute of their game against Workington Town on Sunday May 12."

 

I missed the game (they don't show challenge cup games here in the US except for the final) so I didnt see what happened.  Did Hock get sinbinned?  If not, I have to scratch my head as Grade D is pretty serious.  Remember when Peacock getting sinbinned last month just for making a single comment to the ref?

 

Guess we'll find out later today after the hearing.

He has been banned for four matches for 'deliberate contact with the referee'.  Sounds like he gave him a shove.  He has previous in this area as he was previously banned for contact with a referee while playing for Wigan.

Outraged by this, I've seen literally no proof that anything happened.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

And that's what's wrong with the game! Same laws, different rules! If an amateur abuses a ref(as Hock did earlier in season) the book is thrown at him. What I'm saying is, surely if you have been assaulted you know! We can't have referees assaulted or abused, but at the same time we can't have all this AFTER a game! For example, did the referee'get in the way' of a tackle? If so, is that assault? Is the ref not'part of the pitch'?


Different rules because in one case it's a person's job we are talking about. A life ban for deliberately touching the referee would be actionable in the courts
Banning an amateur sends the message not to do it and hopefully they remember it when a pro.
The RFL have this spot on.

What seems odd is that irrespective of whether length of ban is fair or not, report on sporting life suggest a game that he isn't eligible to play in will count towards ban. Widnes have Wigan within next four matches which his loan agreement preludes hock from playing in. Afaik it also doesn't allow him to go out on dual reg. so if he isn't eligible to play in a match that week how can it count towards the ban?.

From what I've heard Stokes deemed it to be accidental hence why he took no action at the time and said so in his match report, but Mr Ganson felt it wasn't accidental and so referred it.

Workington Town. Then. Now. Always.

Bans are usually number of matches and that's how it's described in report. That's why I thought it odd that Wigan game would count.

"Hock was punished for coming into contact with referee George Stokes during Widnes Vikings' 36-0 win over Workington in Sunday's Tetley's Challenge Cup fifth round tie at Derwent Park."

 

Sounds to me like Hock's actions were completely unneccessary

 

"36-0 win"  :rolleyes:

 

Oh well, how does that song go? "And some men like to hear, the cannon ball a roarin'."
