English Rugby League captain Kevin Sinfield will receive a length and well deserves ban after viciously headbutting a helpless and defenseless Castleford Tigers player Luke Dorn in a 24 all draw in between the two clubs.
Here is footage of the incident:
Seriously, he could have been killed!
In an era of the game when we are trying to stamp out concussion Sinfield act is basically a war against human decency.
Leeds fullback Zak Hardaker tried to defend him after the match.
“Obviously, I know all about losing my cool and heat of the moment stuff.”
“But modern professional as he is, it’s a tight game and rugby league is a tough sport which is demanding on yourself.”
“It’s one of those moments. He’s gutted, he’s real upset about himself and what he’s done and really feels like he’s let the team down.”
While this may be the first sendoff of Sinfields career it should not stop the RFL coming down hard on this violent act.
