Hurrell was scrambling back as Leeds attacked down the left and made contact late on Richie Myler, with the shoulder making contact with Myler’s head.

That prompted Chris Kendall to send off the former Rhinos centre, and from the subsequent penalty, Leeds created field position to win the game with a Blake Austin drop goal.

Sky Sports commentator Jon Wilkin said Myler knew that by staying down the incident would get looked at, and St Helens were left furious that an earlier shoulder charge by Sam Walters hadn’t been punished.

Hurrell was handed a two-match ban for the Grade C charge of reckless.

The card was shown by Liam Moore after consultation with the video referee following a challenge with St Helens full-back Jack Welsby, who remained on the floor for treatment.

Sky Sports commentator Barrie McDermott said: β€œCome on. Secondary contact with the head. He’s not hit the head when he’s made the initial challenge, but somewhere the shoulder makes contact with head. I understand we want to protect players, but he’s a competitor.”
