Ben Flower received a six month ban for his sending off..
I bet Oscar Pistorious gets less for murder.


St Helens Response:

NOW that the Ben Flower incident has been dealt with, St.Helens re-confirm their stance that this is a matter entirely for the RFL governing body and for the player concerned. Neither St Helens nor Lance Hohaia ever considered it to be otherwise.

Chairman Eamonn McManus stated:

"These matters have to be dealt with by the appropriate body within the game and it has so been.

"Whilst serving his ban it is critical that Ben is now provided all due personal and professional support. His rehabilitation is now paramount. During the period of his ban he will be no more than a 25-year-old boy who will be extremely vulnerable emotionally. We must assist him in any way that we can and accept him back into the sport. There is a person behind the player, and I am reliably informed by all that it is a good one. He must know that from all. Lance Hohaia certainly feels that way towards him also.

"The sport of Rugby League should not be judged by this event, but by how it deals with it.

"Ian Lenagan is a strong Chairman of a great club and I know that he will look beyond mere effect and more at cause. If anything is identified and needs to be dealt with then he will. St Helens stand firmly at the side of Wigan at this time.

"Separately, the RFL will take its duties and obligations extremely seriously. Again, we must look beyond the offence itself and identify and deal with any surrounding contributory factors. Certainly, the officiating and disciplinary structures, systems and processes need to be scrutinised, and quickly. Most agree that there has been an increasing lack of consistency in the interpretation and application of the rules of the game, and in its disciplinary sanctions when such rules are deemed to have been broken.

"Real and rapid introspection is critical and trust needs to be unequivocal. Coaches and players must have much more clarity and consistency in the application of the rules and in their sanctions so as not to tempt participants to exploit unclear boundaries nor to risk the unpredictability of sanctions.

"This matter gives the sport of Rugby League the opportunity to positively differentiate itself yet again by dealing with a high profile problem in an efficient, transparent, pragmatic and effective manner. I am confident that it will."

6 month ban??? Starts now, what a F***ing Joke. He will miss about 12 matches. There is no Rugby now for almost 4 Months

Should commence from when the season starts.

My view 1st Punch retaliation for the earlier push by Hohaia, Expected in matches of such high magnitude with adrenaline pumping.

2nd Punch when he is half unconcious on the floor is not acceptable.

I think its fair for what he did,heat of the moment, I have seen much worse on the pitch from other teams,if it hadn't have happened in the final he would have only got 8 matches maximum..

I see the instigator of events got a one match ban as well .. (Sm15)

Get over it ,he will be back early April to play again.. Punishment served..

Alfie I agree with you there. Some people do need to get a life instead of making death threats on cyber networks

Look on the bright side.........we have four players in the squad that play on a proper League.

The Aussie and Kiwi teams have also been devastated as well so it should be an interesting tournament.

It is on Channel 9 here by the way

Thought the Kiwis were marvellous and could/should have scored a couple more tries.


Looks like Cherry_Evans will be out as well next week. Still should be good enough to beat England unless we improve dramatically.
