Killarney forward out for two matches

FRONTROWER Josh Hancock has been suspended for two matches following an incident in the final minutes of Killarney's Patron Shield match against Tenterfield last weekend.

The Killarney Cutters forward received the penalty after being charged with “attacking the head of an opponent” during the Border Rugby League (BRL) game on Saturday.

BRL president Steve McEvoy said Hancock had accepted the judiciary officers' penalty and would miss the next two matches.

The Cutters proved the better side at the weekend winning the hotly-contested BRL Patron's Shield by a convincing 38-20 on the Tenterfield Terriers' home ground.

A Tenterfield player was also cited during the match and was scheduled to appear in front of the Border Rugby League tribunal last night.
