McGoldrick avoids ban
Hull FC’s new signing Ryan McGoldrick has won his appeal against a one-match suspension imposed for pushing a referee.
McGoldrick was punished for making contact with Tim Roby during his debut for Hull in last Friday’s 21-6 Stobart Super League defeat against Leeds Rhinos.
He contested the verdict and tonight the Rugby Football League’s disciplinary committee lifted the suspension, although his £300 fine stands.
McGoldrick is free to play for Hull in Saturday’s re-arranged Super League match against Catalan Dragons in Perpignan.
Catalan prop David Ferriol will miss that game after being given a two-match ban for a high tackle during his side’s 15-6 defeat at Warrington Wolves on Monday night.
Ferriol, who admitted the grade B offence, was also fined £300.
