Raynor charged over Tomkins challenge
Tuesday 24 May 2011
The tackle that saw Gareth Raynor sent off in Bradford's Challenge Cup fifth-round defeat by Wigan is still reverberating. Raynor will tonight face a charge of making a high tackle to the head or neck, over the challenge that briefly knocked out Sam Tomkins and put him out of the match.
The Bulls do not accept that the winger should have been dismissed, with their coach, Mick Potter, promising to pursue the matter. The Rugby League said yesterday, however, that they had received no official complaint from the club. Wigan expect Tomkins to be fit for their next game, at home to Hull KR next Monday.
The early front-runner for the job of coach at Salford has ruled himself out. Kurt Wrigley had talks with the club's director of rugby, Steve Simms, but decided to stay with South Sydney as assistant coach, working next season under the current Wigan coach, Michael Maguire.
