Not the first time he's done something similar

correct 2019 against toronto

Bradford Bulls player George Flanagan pleaded guilty to a Grade F charge of an "Attack to the testicles" during his team's match against Toronto Wolfpack on Sunday, August 4.

The Tribunal agree with the grading and the player received an 8 match suspension and a £250 fine.

Who’d have thunk it.  A small section of the T&A from last time:

JOHN Kear doesn’t want George Flanagan to change.

The battle-hardened hooker is back in action this weekend after serving his lengthy ban.

Flanagan has not played since last August when he was suspended for attacking an opponent’s testicles.

But the 33-year-old returns to the fray in the Bulls’ Challenge Cup fourth-round clash with amateurs Underbank Rangers.

And Kear said: “The reason we signed George Flanagan is because we want him to be George Flanagan.”

Well he has been.

Disgusting to do it even once, to do it twice he should be banned sine die, horrible cretin.

He's probably a "character" and all that to try and defend it.

 

Had Makinson had the same track record, he'd get the same treatment

It's impossible to defend this.

You could think that once was a rush of blood, but do this a second time having already been up before the RFL seems like it would have to be either a massive ban or even sine die

I think we really should be getting rid - he's not adding anything much to the team anyway, and has clearly got 'issues'

Fair point, i'll be interested to see the internal actions by Bradford (if of course it is deemed that he did it).

I wonder why youth participation numbers are decreasing?

Punishments to fit the crime would make a refreshing change.

Well having only played amateur, in the 70's and 80's. I wouldn't call myself a dirty player, but if you think grabbing someone by the testicles is terrible, awful, deserves a life ban. Sometimes to stop a dirty player from their tactics, grabbing somebody's testicles, usually gets their attention.
