Rugby League Player Cops 10-Game Ban For Attacking Opponent's Testicles
When people say "grab the opportunity by the balls", they obviously don't mean it in a literal sense.
Well, it appears George Flanagan clearly didn't get that memo.
Flanagan has been hit with a pretty lengthy suspension after he was found guilty of attacking a rival player's testicles during a game.
The Bradford Bulls hooker will now miss 10 Championship fixtures a result of his actions.
But it seems this isn't the first time Flanagan has gone after another bloke's genitals during a rugby league encounter because it turns out he was actually banned for a similar offence back in 2019.

This most recent incident occurred during Bradford's loss to Featherstone in the Challenge Cup.
After the game, the referee reported the attack to the RFL match review panel who wasted no time in slapping Flanagan with a Grade F charge which carries a minimum eight game suspension.
It's understood he plead not guilty at his tribunal but the sport's governing body wasn't having a bar of it.
Flanagan was also fined £250 (AU$450) to go alongside his ban.
