Six-game ban for Raiders star
Last updated at 21:38, Wednesday, 16 February 2011
BARROW Raiders forward Brett McDermott has been handed a six-match ban by the RFL.
The 31-year-old prop was given close to the maximum seven-match punishment tonight after two incidents of stamping and punching in the 24-20 Northern Rail Cup win over York City Knights on February 6.
The governing body’s disciplinary committee dealt out a four-game ban for the stamping offence and a two-game ban for the punching – meaning, barring appeal, McDermott will not play again until at least mid-April.

Have your say
The super league its a pipe dream,that's a man's game.
Come on the raiders, we can win this , this is our time, we need to believe. Bad discipline is the only thing that will stop us reaching the holy grail of the super league.
In all my years ive never been as exited about a season as i am about his one,
we can be immortal.
