It was, it was downgraded because of his good disciplinary record it seems.

Good behaviour should see him at the low end of the grading, not moved into another category. 

The offence was an F.

That would have meant being unavailable for a possible Challenge Cup semi final though.

Apparently it was downgraded to an E/6 good behaviour got it to a 5

Then they have got it wrong. 

The operational rules state attacking testicle is a Grade F. There is no Grade E punishment for this offence.

Yes.  He is a good player, but he is something of a poster boy.  The judiciary have been shown to be a bunch of numpties.

The original charge was 'other contrary behaviour' not 'attacking the testicles'. The former is A-F to be determined on a case-by-case basis and the grade can be changed at the tribunal, whereas the latter is just F. Presumably then contact was more 'meat' than 'two veg' (can't understand why the offence is so specific about just testicles) but the detail isn't on the disciplinary report.

He's been incredibly fortunate either way.

I hate to see a manipulation of the system like this.  It was clear what he did.  

Acts like this have wider implications.

In my experience one is far different from the other. 🥴

Yup, it's a compete fudge and shouldn't be allowed to happen.

Roger Johnson on BBC North West , quoted his ban as being for " grabbing the crotch of an opponent " 😂

Looked more like the knackers but I’m no medical expert

Surely you arent surprised by this, the whole procedure is a farce with them basically plucking bans out of their posterior for years.
