Bradford hooker George Flanagan has been banned for eight games for a Grade F “attack to the testicles” in his side’s Championship loss to Toronto on 4 August.

At the independent tribunal hearing, the 32-year-old was deemed to have made contact with Toronto full-back Hakim Miloudi while making a tackle.

Flanagan has also been fined £250 and will miss the rest of the season.

In addition, the ex-Hunslet player will miss the opening five games next term.
