Mullally to face no action for Gardner tackle


Huddersfield forward Anthony Mullally will not face action for a tackle that left St Helens winger Ade Gardner unconscious during Monday’s game.

Mullally, 21, was penalised and put on report by referee Richard Silverwood for the challenge.

The game was held up for eight minutes while Gardner recived oxygen from medical staff before the winger was eventually strectured off with his head in a neck brace.

A statement issued by the RFL said: “The player makes a legitimate attempt to tackle by wrapping his arms around his opponent who falls significantly into contact.”

Huddersfield completed their first double over St Helens since 1951 with Monday’s 25-16 win.
