For the second time, in as many weeks, Doncaster Dragons prop, Andy Fisher has been found not guilty of an offence by the RFL Disciplinary at Redhall, having been sent off in consecutive away games at Hull KR and Whitehaven. Not only have the Dragons found themselves struggling because of the loss of their star player in both games, which ended in two defeats for the team, but the part time player himself has lost income from his regular job, in order to attend the hearing.
‘On both occasions I thought Andy's tackles were legal, and the young referees reacted to the home supporters, and I have been proved right. Everyone in the game, including some of the media, seem to have latched on to calling the club ‘dirty’, and I am sick of it. Our coach, St John Ellis, has come in for so much stick in the press that he has had no alternative but to take legal action, which I find very sad. I had a meeting with Richard Lewis last week, at Redhall, to express my concerns about the way the Dragons are being treated, and I am hopeful things will change.
In the meantime, I have this to say to the supporters and media that can't come to terms with Doncaster’s success, and feel obliged to always have a go at us. Get used to it, in the very near future we will be playing in Super League, at a stadium which will be the envy of everyone in the game ‘, said a confident, but equally disappointed Doncaster Chairman, John Wright.
