VIDEO: Oldham star facing lengthy ban for post-match fight

Oldham centre George Tyson is set to miss the start of the season after being charged for Grade D punching following a post-match brawl.

Tyson is alleged to have launched a number of punches at a Rochdale player after the Hornets defeated Oldham to win the Law Cup.

As seen in the video below, Tyson, wearing number four for Oldham, can be seen shaking hands with a number of Rochdale players before appearing to strike Hornets player Jake Eccleston.

His actions were deemed worthy of punishment by the Match Review Panel, and he now faces a three to five-match suspension.

Tyson has just started his second spell with the Roughyeds after spending a year at Sheffield Eagles.
