Round Eleven Rugby League Results and Disciplinary Concerns Overview

Rugby League Results: Disciplinary Concerns Loom After Eventful Round Eleven

The recent weeks have seen a slowdown in Super League disciplinary action after the peak of Round One, which featured a staggering 16 charges. However, Round Eleven could potentially draw a host of new charges following an action-packed slate of six games.

The action kicked off on Thursday, with Warrington Wolves securing a controlled 20-8 victory over Hull KR to climb to the top of the Super League table. This game was free of any major disciplinary concerns.

Friday night, on the other hand, saw two red cards issued in the Castleford Tigers vs. St Helens clash. Despite losing Tommy Makinson in the 12th minute, Saints managed a dominant 60-4 win, but Castleford’s capitulation after going down to 12 players will likely draw scrutiny.

“Players such as Owen Trout, Tommy Makinson, Liam Horne, Liam Byrne, and Esan Marsters could all find themselves in the spotlight as the league reviews the weekend’s action.”

Elsewhere, Leigh continued their strong form, thrashing Salford Red Devils 40-12. However, a tackle by Leigh’s Owen Trout that injured Salford’s Jack Ormondroyd could warrant a closer look from the disciplinary panel.

Saturday’s action included a yellow card for Wigan’s Liam Byrne in the opening minute against Huddersfield, with pundits suggesting it warranted a red. Catalans Dragons also cruised to a 26-0 victory over Leeds Rhinos, further piling pressure on Rhinos’ head coach Rohan Smith.

The weekend’s surprise result came on Sunday, as London Broncos secured their first win of the season, defeating Hull FC 34-18. However, this game was not without controversy, with an incident reported by referee Chris Kendall and a yellow card shown.

With several potential disciplinary issues across the six fixtures, the Super League’s governing body will undoubtedly have its hands full in the coming days.
