Hock on report for eye-gouging incident

Wigan forward Gareth Hock was placed on report by referee Richard Silverwood for an alleged eye-gouging on Ben Harrison in today’s defeat to Warrington.

With the Warriors well beaten in the latter stages, Hock appeared to gouge the eyes of Warrington forward Ben Harrison in the tackle. When Harrison got to his feet, a punch was thrown by the Wigan man, sparking a minor skirmish between players from both sides.

The incident, clearly caught on the SKY TV cameras, has led to fans on social networks calling for a ban for the 27-year-old. If found guilty, the RFL recommend a minimum four game ban as per their disciplinary guidelines, meaning Hock would miss the rest of the season.

Hock returned to action this season after serving a two-year ban for using an illegal substance.
