Widnes Vikings forward Gareth Hock and Cory Paterson of Hull KR have both been suspended for four matches after they appeared before the RFL Disciplinary Panel earlier this evening.


Hock was found guilty of a Grade D offence for making deliberate contact with a match official, during the Tetley's Challenge Cup fifth round tie against Workington Town on Sunday May 12.  Hock, who pleaded not guilty to the offence, was also fined £300 by the Panel.


Paterson was found guilty of committing a Grade D reckless striking offence on Blake Green of Wigan Warriors, during their Tetley's Challenge Cup game on Sunday.  Paterson was also fined £300 by the Panel.

They just can't seem to keep out of trouble, these two.

You'd have thought theyd have learnt their lesson yesterday.

         SL Hit Man 2016 - Danny Houghton (1,289 tackles)                        SL Club of the Year 2016 - Hull FC

         SL Coach of the Year 2016 - Lee Radford                                        RL Challenge Cup Winners 2016 - Hull FC


                                                                      All in all, not a bad year, I suppose...
