Bradford Bulls’ whore George Flanagan has been found guilty of ‘attacking an opponent’s testicles’ and issued a lengthy ban
Bradford Bulls hooker George Flanagan has been banned for 10 games and fined £ 250 after being found guilty of ‘attacking an opponent’s testicles’ for the second time in 18 months.
The incident took place in the 32nd minute of round 41-16 of the Bulls’ Challenge Cup against Featherstone Rovers on March 21.
Flanagan, who was banned from eight games for a similar offense in August 2019, pleaded not guilty to the charge but was found guilty after a disciplinary hearing in Leeds.
A grade F charge is the most serious assessment open to the Rugby Football League match judging panel and has a minimum suspension of eight matches.
The sentence was handed out after a disciplinary hearing in Leeds that lasted more than three hours.
Bradford-born hooker Flanagan joined the club in February 2018 from Hunslet RLFC.
Flanagan was a key member of John Kear’s team during the 2019 and 2019 season, with a total of 40 appearances and 20 tries, one of those against Leon Pryce’s Workington Town in the League One play-off final.

The rugby league has had a number of unsavory incidents on the field over the years.
Sam Burgess, who has represented England in both rugby league and union and played in Australia’s National Rugby League, was banned for two weeks for a ‘squirrel tackle’ in which he grabbed opponent Will Chambers’ testicles in a game in 2013.
Former NRL player John Hopoate was banned and fired by his club in 2001 for sticking his fingers up an opponent’s anus more than once.
